Those seniors attending The Career and Training Fair at TCHS Brandywine next Thursday should scout out the companies that align with their interests and career path. Also note, some companies may be hiring for more than one career field - for example - Main Line Health may be hiring for health care professionals and also food service employees. It's important to explore the company, take a look at their website and gather some information.
You can view the list of participating companies here. I"ve highlighted a few that are aligned with visual art careers. Pay attention to when each company is going to be available and schedule your day accordingly. Our goal is for you to interview with at least three companies. If you're looking for a part-time or full-time job this is a great opportunity to possibly land a solid position for the summer, the future, or beyond.
Networking is critical to your career. It's a skill you can improve over time and this is a great first step.

Art Exhibit Poster - Choose a famous artist (daVinci, Michaelangelo, or Caravaggio would work well.) The poster will be tabloid size and advertise a spring exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. You will need a dozen sample work images for your artist. A research source you could use is the Google Art Project.
The skills we'll be trying to develop this week include:
