Chevron High School Career Fair

We hear so much in our state about workforce training and keeping our workforce local. Today, Chevron reached out to local high schoolers to show them the career opportunities in front of them.
About 400 high school juniors and seniors from Jackson, George and Greene Counties took part in a career fair at Pelican Landing in Moss Point. Chevron personnel from a number of different departments gave students hands-on experience with equipment and tools of the trade. To end the fair, students took a tour of the Chevron refinery.
Chevron Community Affairs Representative Amy Brandenstein said, “It is critically important the students begin to start thinking about what they might want to do in the future. So, we have employees that are sharing what they do each day in their jobs.”
Gautier High junior Jonathan Nelson said, “It’s a great experience to learn about Chevron. They give great opportunities for kids to learn how your job experience will be at Chevron and how if you go there, it will be great for opportunities.”
Nelson tells News 25 he wants to go to college to become an electrical engineer and he thought today’s hands on experience in that field was great.
