The Public School System marked another success in yesterday’s career fair, which saw the participation of 26 various companies and more than a hundred students from public schools.
Tyce Mister, teacher-coordinator for the Marianas High School’s Cooperative Education and Training Program, disclosed that about 120 high school students took part in the fair yesterday noon at the Hyatt Regency Saipan.
The students were from the cooperative education and training program of MHS, Kagman High School, and Saipan Southern High School. Students from the special education secondary transition program were also in attendance in yesterday’s activity.
The cooperative program is designed to help prepare students for the job market. The program consists of both cooperative education on campus and cooperative training off campus. Students first learn how to complete résumés, applications, interviews, and personal development, then gain work experience by participating as a "trainee" at an off campus business organization. The training hours are generally during the afternoon school hours.
The career fair, held at the Hyatt Regency’s SandCastle starting at 1:30pm, saw the participation of companies and groups that included the Law Office of Robert Torres, Hyatt Regency Saipan, IT&E, WIA, NMC Career Center, Marianas Medical Center, Bridge Capital LLC, Commonwealth Cancer Association, Saipan World Resort, Northern Marianas Housing Corp., CNMI Judicial Branch, Botchee Int’l Games, Joeten Enterprises Inc., Joeten Kiyu Public Library, Pacific Airport Services, Marianas Variety, Marianas Health Services, Saipan Apparel, Kan Pacific Saipan, Pacific Islands Club, Medical Associates of the Pacific, Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan, Community Guidance Center - Project Brabu, PSS Central Offices, Hard Rock Café, and Northern Marianas Trades Institute.
