Feb. 7, 2024-- Representatives from Ocean County Vocational and Technical School (OCVTS) were on hand today at Intermediate North to host a Career Fair, which helped raise awareness among the school's eighth graders about their options, potential interests, and educational and career pathways.
Cosmetology, culinary arts, design and visual communications, fashion design, and automotive technology were just some of the programs and pathways students were able to learn more about, or-- like when it came to cosmetology-- actually experience for themselves (right).
Intermediate North Guidance Coordinator Anthony Dispoto orchestrated the event in collaboration with OCVTS.
"I believe our students benefit greatly from as much exposure as possible with regards to what opportunities can be found ahead as they mature along their academic journey," said Dispoto.
"Based on the feedback we received from students, staff, and the OCVTS," he added, "this event was well received and students were engaged during its entirety. We look forward to hosting this event on an annual basis."
