Sumter District School’s Career and Technical Education Department will be hosting the Sumter Senior Hiring Fair from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. May 19 at the Sumter Prep Academy at 200 Cleveland Ave, in Wildwood.
This event will connect graduating seniors with local employers for on-site interviews and immediate hiring. Students will attend the event in one-hour time slots to accommodate social distancing protocols.
Seniors from Sumter’s high schools are graduating with a variety of Industry Certifications making them preferred candidates for potential employers.
