Lamar ISD Reading Jr High Career Expo

January 24 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am

On Thursday, January 24, 2019 from 8:00 to 11 a.m., Reading Junior High School (RJH) will host its annual 8th Grade Career and College Expo.We would very much like to feature careers at BASF at this exciting event designed to inspire our students to succeed. (Reading Junior High is located in Fort Bend County in the Lamar CISD).

  • The purpose of the Career Expo is to introduce our 8th grade students to a wide variety of career and employment possibilities available to them prior to their ninth grade endorsement and course selection deadline.
  • During this trade-show type event, simply conduct a short informal presentation to tell the students about job highlights and the education and/or training required to attain your current career.
  • Displays, props and equipment related your career are encouraged to grab the students’ attention to engage them in interactive dialogue! Please feel free to distribute promotional items, flyers or brochures to promote your business as well (a 6 ft. table will be provided).
  • Closer to the event date you will receive specific logistics regarding parking, check in and event itinerary.
