Students can benefit from the virtual career fair by connecting with local industry leaders and the region’s most prominent employers. They can explore various career paths and learn which skills are most sought-after in the market. The event will also help them plan their high school pathway so they can focus on their academic interests with the right coursework. 

Business owners, parents or guardians, community leaders, educators, and government officials can all join the event and help Junior Achievement guide young students to a career path that suits them. The virtual career fair has been brought to life by local business owners in and around Tarrant County. They will help students learn about certain career paths, explore their choices, and make informed decisions for their future.
