The DPS Eighth-Grade Career Fair helps students explore and plan their future in a high-energy event attended by more than 4,000 students, 180 businesses and organizations, 20 postsecondary institutions, 25 DPS high schools, and 100 adult and student volunteers. Join us!

At the annual fair, students find their careers of interest and interview 2-3 career representatives to find out what they do, what skills they need and how best to prepare. Next, they visit a few postsecondary institutions to learn more about what they need to do in high school to prepare for the various college options. Finally, they are able to visit the high school booths to learn which schools and programs best align with their career and postsecondary goals.
