HS Students Meet Local Businesses at Job Fair


The School to Careers Partnership at the high school and the Suffolk County Department of Labor Career One-Stop recently hosted a teen job fair during lunch periods at the school. Eleven local organizations – American Pools, Best Buy, Long Island Ducks, Local Burger Co., Great South Bay YMCA, Marconi Manor, SCOPE, Suffolk County Department of Labor, Town of Islip Recreation, Tropical Smoothie Cafe and Youth Enrichment Services – participated, handing out applications and conducting on-site interviews. Kathleen McGullam, a labor technician at SCDOL, helped organize the event.

“Our goal was to expose students to local businesses that are hiring teens and to give the students the opportunity to meet the businesses, fill out applications and be interviewed,” said teacher Renee Clock.
