On Your Mark...

Nearly 30 percent of high school seniors do not have plans after graduation. The Senior Sprint Career Fair will connect these students with employers who are ready to hire and colleges that can help them set a successful career path. The Huntsville/Madison County Chamber is collaborating with Huntsville City Schools, Madison County Schools, Madison City Schools, the local Alabama Career Center, J.F. Drake State Community and Technical College, Calhoun Community College, and local companies to help students create resumes, get a job interview, apply for student financial aid, and enroll in post-secondary education and training. If you are a graduating senior who has already enrolled in a two-year college, this event will be perfect for you as well.

Employers who are interested in attending this event MUST be willing to train, hire, and provide clear occupational pathways for graduating seniors. It is important for employers to have a growth strategies for each graduate hired.
