RHS hosted a job fair in the school’s cafeteria. The school teamed up with Enactus, a student organization at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, and featured companies and businesses from Richfield and surrounding communities, as well as various seminars on career development for students.
Approximately 125 students attended the event and employers seemed satisfied with being there; the school is planning to do it again next year! Companies present included: American Eagle Outfitters, Bruegger’s Bagel Bakeries, Freshii, Levi’s, DQ Grill & Chill, Metro Sales Inc., Pretzelmaker, Express, Atlas Staffing Inc, Pilgrim Cleaners, Jimmy Johns, Bed Bath & Beyond, Noodles & Company Edina and McDonalds, Edina.
Because a lot of high school kids are not comfortable walking into businesses and requesting information about jobs or applications, bringing companies to the school was very beneficial!
