The Barbour County Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual Career Day at Philip Barbour High School on Monday. Juniors and Seniors learned about job opportunities from more than 15 businesses.
Organizers say they like to invite local business leaders to talk with kids about careers available to them close to home.
“It is very important to connect children, or high school students with potential careers especially to try to keep the talent at home,” said Career Day Spokesperson, Hunter Mullins. “One of the goals of the Barbour County Chamber of Commerce is to keep our local talent local and to keep them from leaving the state North Central West Virginia.”
The Chamber of Commerce has been hosting career days for more than 10 years.
