A new Career Café at a local high school is already helping students land jobs.

The Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk Career Café launched with a manufacturing job fair for dozens of its juniors and seniors.

It gave students the chance to learn straight from the source, the skills, attitudes and experience needed to land a local manufacturing job.

Teacher Maureen Martin said, "Being able to provide students with direct access to local employment information prior to them graduating is a key component of preparing our students for the working world."

The Career Café is housed in the high school library and was recently updated to be more adaptable for students.

The furniture can be moved to create spaces for speakers, classes on resume building and interview strategy sessions.

A collaborative workspace is also in development for students to explore problems and create solutions in a hands-on environment.
RCS Superintendent Dr. Brian Bailey added: "The more exposure we can provide to our students while coupling it with an educational experience, the more they will be ready for the ever-changing world that awaits them."
