Virtual Tri-Valley Career Fair explores industry insights this week

Created by students for students, sessions set for Tuesday and Wednesday

The Tri-Valley Career Fair, a student-created event, is now welcoming high-schoolers to learn about career paths this week.

Organized by Tri-Valley students Jiho Choi and Nisha Iyer, the career fair will offer students to hear an in-depth presentation from different industries in an interactive interview format.

"We strongly believe that our event would help students develop more about their future careers," Choi said.

The event will last two days from 6-8 p.m. with a variety of speakers taking up separate time slots.

On Tuesday (Aug. 4), the guests include Tammy Ma, a program element leader at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; Fred Walovich, an architect at Walovich Architect; and Nate Boyer, a former Green Beret, and NFL long snapper.
