On May 4, Seacoast United, alongside New Hampshire Employment Security (NHES), the Department of Education, New Hampshire Association of School Principals and New Hampshire School Administrators Association, will come together for the state’s first ever virtual job fair, which will provide a platform for high school students throughout the Granite State to find employment this summer.
“Summer is always a busy time in New England and hospitality, restaurant and retail businesses are always looking to add to their teams,” Seacoast United Sales and Marketing Director James Peterson said.
“For the most part, these companies are looking to fill entry-level positions which are great for those who are entering the workforce for the first time. In addition to helping local businesses, the students will benefit from the experience of working and taking the first steps toward becoming a key member within their community. This event ties in with Seacoast United’s holistic approach toward not only developing athletes but preparing young people for life. We teach our players about being a part of a team, being accountable and being a leader …These qualities are all transferable to life and this is a prime example of us teaching our kids how to make a real difference.”
Seacoast United teamed up with NHES in 2021 and together, they hosted three virtual career fairs which saw businesses and prospective employees from around the region participate. Kate LaPierre and the rest of NHES are excited to put on this event which will go a long way in preparing young people for the future. “Having a summer job during, or even just after High School, teaches students about problem solving, resilience and collaboration in the real-world. Partnerships like this help make those connections between students and businesses in our communities stronger.”
