Science Center and City Machine Technologies, Inc. The event will be held at MCCTC, 7300 N Palmyra Road in Canfield, on Saturday, February 26, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Children are our future,” says Claudia Kovach, Vice President of City Machine Technologies, Inc. “One day, they will be applying for jobs in town, wouldn’t it be nice to learn some ended up in their specific career field because they attended this event and learned about a new line of work that wasn’t taught at home or at school?”
The Kids Career Fair was developed to showcase the great career opportunities in the area that many children and even parents might not know about. Companies can register for a table at the fair here:
The Kids Career Fair coincides with February’s Career and Technical Schools Month, says Jessica Cene, Marketing and Job Placement Coordinator for MCCTC. “Exposing students to different careers at an early age is so critical and that’s why hosting career fairs geared towards a younger age group is necessary,” Cene said.
Businesses are being asked to provide a fun table activity for children during the event, as well as pass-out giveaways.
Ralf Urbach, Director of Education for OH WOW ! Science Center, says “It’s always better to see and touch a nut or a bolt then just learn about it from a picture, which is why this event will be so successful in helping students learn about new careers.”
The Kids Career Fair is free and open to the public.
