Career Fair at Zama Middle High School

Zama Middle High School will host a Career Fair April 13 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at the school, and they are currently seeking individuals from a variety of career fields who would be interested in representing their field at the event.

Per ZMHS teacher Lyndsay Morrison: “The goal is for students to be exposed to a variety of careers across many different career clusters. Because we are on a military installation in an overseas location, our students do not have the same level of access to career readiness resources as stateside schools, but we are willing to do all that we can to ensure their experiences in preparing for life after high school are not limited.”

If you, or other members of your unit or organization are interested in presenting at the Career Fair, please complete the Google form found at the following link: or by scanning the QR code in the flyer below.

Immediate information needed from applicants is as follows:

- Name(s) of the presenter(s)

- Educational experience or career/job to be discussed

The deadline to submit the interest form is March 31.
