IMG_0584 WEBBy: James Pruitt

Archbold High School hosted a job fair for its students who may be looking for a part-time summer job and beyond.

The fair drew several area employers who are looking for full- and part-time help and helped put students in touch with potential employers. The event was held in the school gym with the different employers.

Some students had completed applications and resumes and had set appointments for interviews. Others came down by class to fill out applications and talk with company representatives.

The ones with appointments had completed their resumes and cover letters through English and business classes Principal Royal Short said. They went to one side of the gym.

“The local businesses offered one on one job interviews for those interested in summer help and full-time for graduates who aren’t sure what they want to do,” Short said.

The other side of the gym had students coming down by grade (sophomore through senior) to let them meet with businesses looking to hire. The students were considered potential and future employees, Short said.

“They picked up applications or scheduled interviews,” Short said.

Among the companies represented were Sauder Manufacturing, Sauder Village, McDonald’s, F & M Bank, Archbold Container and Archbold Parks and Rec.

“The students were excited about the potential employers,” Short said. “Especially some of the seniors who do not know what they are going to do.”
