Officer Jessica Johnson, of the Ocean City Police Department, said,“We offer internships which are important for students who are trying to get experience in the field. What we offer are seasonal police officer programs as well as paying them for their time working with us.”
While the majority of careers being offered were in law enforcement, there were other tables set up for other services and job possibilities.
Benedictine recruiter Kim Strannahan said, “We offer jobs dealing with individuals between the ages of 5- 21 who have disabilities, such as Autism, and we do offer 'full time' benefits.”
Carson Williamson, a student at Delaware Tech, visited the fair to gather information for his future career plans.
Williamson said, “There’s a lot of information out there. It can be a little overwhelming but the people are pretty friendly and they are willing to help you understand everything. They have something not specifically tailored for each student but more towards students goals in general.”
“I think that this is greatly benefiting Delaware Tech because it’s showing students of these various pathways and that there are options for them and their options aren’t limited,” said Williamson.
Delaware Technical Community College offers a job fair for students every semester. Students should be sure to check out their calendars on the DTCC website for any upcoming events.
