The Appoquinimink School District held a Workforce Readiness Fair on December 18th which was sponsored by Dover Federal Credit Union, and hosted by Wilmington University. This event was designed specifically to help their students learn skills which will prepare them for entering the work force. Approximately 350 Appoquinimink school district students attended this one-day event which focused on resume development, interviewing, networking, and other workforce tips. During the day, students had the opportunity to attend four breakout sessions, as well as speak with 50 area industry and business partners, including banking, medical, and childcare industries. The Appoquinimink School District is currently the only district in Delaware which provides a workforce readiness event of this type. Chaz Rzewnicki, Dover Federal Credit Union President and CEO, stated “Dover Federal is proud to be a partner of the Appoquinimink School District and happy we could support the Workforce Readiness Fair. The program provided the students in attendance with important information to help them in the future.”
