With our students out of school and transitioning to online learning, this is a challenging time for them as well.  We have two opportunities for FABA Members to help the students while they learn from home.  Please reach out to the contact listed below if you are able to help.

SCTC Virtual Career Fair – Videos Needed

The Spotsylvania Career & Technical Center is collecting videos for students to virtually explore different career options. Feeling creative? Create a 1-3 minute video about your career story and talk a little about what a normal day on the job may look like. Please send all videos directly to Emily Hall at the SCTC, ehall@spotsylvania.k12.va.us

Here is an example of a video provided by Congressman Wittman https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIKoh-XV1-4.  Please try to keep your video to between 1-3 minutes. Shorter videos will hold the student’s attention better.

Germanna Community College

Germanna Community College is now operating completely on-line and yet still trying to deliver the same types of services to our students and community partners. Due to COVID-19 GCC is not hosting their annual in-person career expo but they have asked that you send any job or hiring information directly to them, and they will promote it to their students.

GCC is also putting together a weekly newsletter for students – “The Launching Pad” and they are looking for employers who may be willing to share a short piece on job searching and career success!  They are looking for different professionals to contribute to the newsletter and encourage their students to stay focused and positive during this confusing time. The hints or tips do not have to be long but are a great way to stay connected. A photo or video would also help with the connecting.
Please send GCC submissions to Marie at mhawley@germanna.edu
