On February 9th, The Marillac St. Vincent Associate Board hosted the first annual MSV Career Fair.
The day was a great success. Throughout the event, children and teens listened to panels and participated in group discussions with working professionals from every field. Over 20 professionals volunteered their time, including attorneys, teachers, sales professionals, filmmakers/producers, television news anchors, Chicago police officers, and professional athletes. We want to thank everyone who came to share their knowledge and expertise with the students.
Associate Board member Brittney Cato played a big part in organizing the event. When we asked Brittney why the Associate Board decided to put on a career fair, she said, “We would like to introduce the students to young adults who have experienced the same or similar obstacles, struggles, and even insecurities (e.g., race, socioeconomic status, gender, and a-typical household structures), yet have continued to pursue and realize their dreams."
