BRAWLEY — Representatives from wide ranging careers and job training programs were at Brawley Union High School Tuesday to give students a taste of the working world at the school's biannual career fair.
"We try to focus on preparing students for post-high school and expose them to a variety of choices," said BUHS career specialist Brenda Haley.
In addition to the dozens of information tables and representatives in the school's central courtyard, some career representatives spoke to interested students in classrooms. On hand were professionals from the worlds of NFL coaching, neurology, park rangers and meat plant occupations, to name a few.
The career fair's breadth of offerings is made possible because of the school's partnerships with Imperial Valley businesses, said Brawley Union High School District Superintendent Garth Isom.
