Reverse Job fair showcased students to potential employers
(Sewell, NJ) On Friday, April 20, Rowan College at Gloucester County hosted their first Reverse Job fair. The Reverse Job fair allowed student members of the Adult Center for Transition (ACT) to showcase their strengths and demonstrate how much value they can bring to businesses or organizations present at the event.
ACT is a post-secondary experience that prepares young adults with disabilities to become independent, contributing members of society. By focusing on student goals and strengths, ACT provides targeted academic, social and vocational education to prepare each graduate for tomorrow's competitive workforce.
In attendance was Freeholder Heather Simmons, liaison to the Department of Economic Development and Workforce Development Board.
Freeholder Simmons said, "This event allowed young job seekers to take on the role employers would usually take at these job fairs. Local businesses were able to meet with postsecondary education students seeking employment and hear what strengths they could bring to the workforce."
