BALTIMORE (WMAR) - On Wednesday, high school seniors in Baltimore City who plan to work right after graduation will have the chance to meet dozens of potential employers.
About 500 high school seniors will be attending this job fair as part of the mayor's violence reduction initiative. Mayor Pugh says she hopes this will give young people opportunities to be productive and find careers with advancement possibilities.
Representatives from more than 90 businesses will be meeting the seniors at the War Memorial Building and they're from all sectors, including healthcare, hospitality, IT, and the military.
Baltimore natives Davon Fleming, who competed on The Voice last year, as well as Lil Key, a rapper who appeared on season two of the Rap Game, will be at the job fair.
Transportation will be provided for the high schoolers who are interested in attending the job fair.
