FCS Career Fair explores job opportunities

Two hundred high school students from 20 school districts across the area – including schools in Wichita, Kansas City and Tulsa, Okla. – will be on the Pittsburg State University campus Monday, Dec. 3, to learn what careers in family and consumer science could hold for them.

The Department of Family and Consumer Sciences will sponsor its 8th annual Career Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Overman Student Center. The day will include workshops informing students about internship and career opportunities in the various areas of FCS, such as fashion and interior design, family management and early childhood development.

Faculty members will meet with teachers that day to discuss educational opportunities at the high school level. Students and teachers will also get a tour of the campus, including the FCS building.

“The old home economics label we all grew up with is aimed at what you do inside the home,” said FCS Chairman Duane Whitbeck. “We’re aiming now at careers you can have beyond the home.”

For more information, contact Whitbeck at 620-235-4456.
