Eighth-graders will have a chance to explore careers at ChamberRVA’s “Mission Tomorrow”

Henrico, Va. Oct. 12, 2018 – Eighth-graders will have an opportunity to engage with representatives of more than 140 employers at ChamberRVA’s “Mission Tomorrow” career fair Oct. 18 and 19. The event, held at the Richmond Raceway, will give area eighth-graders a chance to have fun while they learn about a host of business and government employers. More than 12,000 students are slated to attend.
Exhibitors at the event have set up interactive booths. Students can approach exhibits that interest them, enjoy engaging hands-on activities and talk with employers.
Students will be able to ask about job responsibilities, as well as salary ranges and advancement opportunities. They can also find out about the educational requirements of various jobs and use that information to plan as they move into high school and beyond.
The event will offer tours of the career fair for parents and guardians each morning from 8:15-9:30 a.m. Parents and guardians can see what their students will experience at Mission Tomorrow, and talk later with them about careers the students found interesting.
Parents and guardians are also welcome to support the event as volunteers. To volunteer, go to ChamberRVA’s website at www.chamberrva.com/volunteers/.
