Over 70 local and regional businesses will be featured at the 2017 Goochland County Public Schools Career Day on Tuesday, March 14 at Goochland High School between 8:30 and 12:00.

The GCPS Career and Technical Education Department has organized this event for four years. All students grades 6 through 12 will have a chance to explore and interact with representatives from a variety of careers.
“This is the largest career fair ever for GCPS. It brings our students-both those who plan to pursue post secondary education and those entering the workforce-exposure to the careers of the 21st century”, said Mr. Bruce Watson, Goochland County Public Schools Director of Career and Technical Education.
This year GCPS will open the Career Fair up to the greater community. Anyone interested can visit Goochland High during the regular career fair hours of 8:30 to noon.
