ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Vertus High School hosted a community job fair Thursday.
Several local businesses, colleges, non-profit organizations, and military recruiters set up booths on Humboldt Street
The school was hoping to help reconnect the community after months of virtual-only gatherings.
"We want to expose our students to more opportunities, different jobs, different colleges, different careers," said coordinator Sha-yon Ross. "They can have more than just playing basketball or different sports and we also know that people in our community need jobs and different opportunities."
Ross said all of the employers there today are hiring, and the colleges were eager to talk to students about educational opportunities.
