Thousands of Students Attend Toohil’s ‘Jobs For You’ Expo at Hazleton Area High School
10/24/2014
HAZLETON – In her continuing effort to promote family-sustaining careers in the Hazleton area, Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) today co-hosted the second annual “Jobs For You” Expo and Information Fair at Hazleton Area High School.

Representatives from nearly 60 employers in the Greater Hazleton area were available to provide students with information about careers that can be pursued in the local community. About 2,500 students from Hazleton Area High School and Hazleton Area Career Center attended.

“Young people always say they can’t find a good job and we hear from employers who say they can’t find good applicants. So, we’re trying to bridge that gap,” said Toohil. “There are plenty of wonderful careers available for them right here at home and we’re exposing them to those opportunities through this event.”

Students were also able to practice their job interview skills through the Pennsylvania CareerLink “Big Interview,” an interactive computer program.

Joining Toohil in hosting the event were Partners in Education (PIE) and the Greater Hazleton Chamber of Commerce.

“This is an opportunity for us to interact with the next generation,” said Chamber President Mary Malone. “Many of these students have lived here their whole lives but are unaware of the career options available to them locally.”

Toohil would like to thank the six “Gold Sponsors” who helped make the expo possible. They included Bemis Company, DBI Services, George J. Hayden Inc., Lehigh Valley Health Network, PPL and UGI.
