Career Fair

What is the Career Fair?

Held every March, 50+ businesses spend the morning with our Riverwood students sharing career information. The Foundation provides snacks catered by our own Culinary Department and organizes the event by inviting community members to attend.  Our students are exposed to community businesses offering summer jobs, internships and work based learning opportunities.  Additionally, many area professionals attend the fair to discuss future careers with our students.  
 
Some of the businesses that attended during the 2016-2017 school year include: The Sandy Springs Police Department, Home Depot, Dantanna’s Restaurant, Aviation Institute of Maintenance, The Sandy Springs Fire Rescue, The National Guard, and The Sandy Springs Perimeter Chamber.
 
Why is the Career Fair Important to Riverwood?
 
The Career Fair features careers, internships and job opportunities to our students they might otherwise have not been aware.  Furthermore, the Career Fair exposes the Sandy Springs community to our amazingly talented students.  The Sandy Springs community has very little opportunity to interact with our students and the Foundation enjoys opening our doors to show off our students.  
 
How you can support the Career Fair?
 
If you have a career that our students would enjoy learning about,  we would love to have you participate. If you work for a business that attends community events,  we would appreciate contact information to invite your business to our Fair.  Please help us expand the Career Fair to include even more area businesses and careers.
