JA Inspire career fair going virtual in March, expecting more students to join

EASTERN SHORE, Md.- Junior Achievement career exploration fair that usually reaches around 3,000 students is going virtual.

Typically, hundreds of local businesses and students on the Eastern Shore attend the event.

This year Businesses will have virtual booths where students can see videos, flyers, and webinars as they click through.

We’re told even though the career fair cant’ be held in person this year organizers felt it was still important to do something.

“There’s not people coming into their classrooms to talk to them like they would on a regular school year, so that doesn’t mean that kids still don’t need to see business people or people from the community,” Lisa Thornton, Development Director, said.

The event will take place over a two-week timeframe in March.

For the first time, they will be able to offer this fair to high school students and adult job-seekers.

If you’re a business and want to get involved, you can head to their website www.easternshoreja.org for more information.
