Seventy-three businesses will gather to introduce themselves to potential employees at Watertown High School for a career fair Friday, March 22.
The career fair is being planned by representatives of Watertown High School and the Watertown Area Chamber of Commerce.
"Recruiting a future workforce is a number one priority for our member businesses," said Susan Dascenzo, executive director of the Watertown Area Chamber of Commerce. "Our businesses' ability to remain competitive or to expand in the future is dependent on their ability to retain a workforce."
"This experience greatly benefits our students and the business community," said Jesse Domer, WHS teacher and adviser of SkillsUSA. "To be exposed to so many different potential opportunities in their hometown is very eye opening."
The Gosling Career Fair will begin at 8 a.m. for high school students. The fair will be open to the public from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Over 50 companies are hiring seasonal, part-time and full-time employees.
