The Appoquinimink School District held a Workforce Readiness Fair on Dec. 18, which was sponsored by Dover Federal Credit Union and hosted by Wilmington University.
The event was designed specifically to help students learn skills that will prepare them for entering the work force. Approximately 350 Appoquinimink school district students attended the one-day event which focused on resume development, interviewing, networking and other workforce tips. During the day, students had the opportunity to attend four breakout sessions as well as speak with 50 area industry and business partners, including banking, medical and childcare industries.
The Appoquinimink School District is currently the only district in Delaware which provides a workforce readiness event of this type.
