Career & Educational Advancement Fair

Cape Ann Career & College Fair

8th Annual Greater Cape Ann Career & Educational Advancement Fair

Thursday, March 7, 2024 | 5:30 - 7:00 PM

Each year in March the Greater Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester-Essex and Essex North Shore Agricultural and Technical High Schools host the Annual Greater Cape Ann Career & Educational Advancement Fair. All local high school students are invited to attend.

Why should I attend?

The Chamber’s business leaders have partnered with our area schools to bring 75 colleges and universities to the event, along with more than 50 local business leaders, to help you explore career opportunities and associated educational pathways. Many of the businesses and non-profit organizations will also have internships and community service opportunities.

What will I get out of it – how will it help me?

In addition to the advanced education career fields, we will also have industries and opportunities represented that do not require college degrees, including the trades and Armed Forces. College and local business representatives will be there to help in the development of your personal roadmap towards a career on Cape Ann or beyond.

What will it cost me?

There is no charge for this event. This fair is sponsored by The Cape Ann Chamber Business & Professional Educators Network: the Business / Education Collaborative. We look forward to having you participate in this unique and exciting event, to help you better understand Cape Ann career opportunities and the various pathways toward a most rewarding career.
