Riverchase Middle School Principal Charles Smith hopes the school’s seventh-annual Career Fair Nov. 13 will not only help his students to undercover future career paths.

He said he hopes the career fair might also help others in the community find employment opportunities. For the first time, the Career Fair will be open to parents and others in the community seeking jobs.

“We wanted this year’s Career Fair to be something we were doing to help the community,” said Smith. “With the current state of the economy we thought it would be worth it if we could help someone to find a job.”

Smith said a total of 82 businesses are expected to attend. Smith stressed that not every business represented at the fair will be networking with the adults –– only those who have current job openings. The Career Fair will be held from 8 a.m.-noon.
