Direct Communications at Bear Lake High School Career Day

Direct Communications at Bear Lake High School Career Day

Donna Passey represented Direct Communications at the first annual Bear Lake High School Career Day on March 22nd at the high school. Presenters were divided up into different groups that were similar. Direct Communications spoke as part of the media and communications group. There were four presenters in this group and each was given about 10 minutes to discuss their business, what type of employees were needed and the qualifications. Students listened and were very polite and given time to ask questions. Direct Communications also gave out pencils, flyers on their services, and frisbees.

Principal Allan Schwab said, “This was a great way to expose students to some of the many opportunities awaiting them. I believe our students got a lot out of this, but I also believe it was a very good way for our community to come into the school and interact with the students. We need to work together to educate our kids, and this was a great event for that.” Plans are already in place for next year’s career fair.

Renee Davis, Bear Lake Montpelier Chamber of Commerce explained the goal of the career fair: “We are looking to our business owners and community leaders to step up and take advantage of this great opportunity to give back to our youth. Our vision is to provide a forum to bridge the gap between  local business owners and our future work force. We want to give our kids a place to go to connect with professionals in their fields of interest.”

Direct Communications employs local residents in the communities we serve, and currently have 6 employees who reside in the Bear Lake area.
