Manufacturing Fairs.by Mike Marenna and Mildred De Los Santos

During the month of April, Bigelow Tea continued their WWW efforts by getting out into the community and participating in 2 manufacturing based career fairs at 2 local regional vocational high schools. Here at Bigelow Tea, we recognize the importance of manufacturing and how important it is to teach others about the benefits of choosing a career in manufacturing. It was with this spirit that we attended these fairs and reached out to countless soon to be high school graduates.

On April 5, 2013, Millie De Los Santos and Mike Marenna attended the "Manufacture Your Future" Student Expo as exhibitors at Platt Technical High School.  The Bigelow set up was very similar to a table top type trade show complete with literature and teabag samples.  The Expo had more than 250 students from all over the state and the students had many questions.  The production equipment pictures sparked a lot of questions in the manufacturing area.  There was a lot of interest in Marketing and Finance as well.  By being an exhibitor, it makes a difference in a young person's life, while helping to grow our manufacturing workforce. 

We also attended the Emmett O'Brien Technical High School 1st Annual Career Fair on April 26, 2013.  This was also a table top type setting with literature and teabag samples.  This program was a way to connect with Emmett O'Brien students in an effort to gain information on what the expectations or requirements are for being considered for employment in trades today. Similar to Platt Technical, the students were very amazed with the manufacturing facility as well as very enthusiastic about our tea company. We do expect to see some resumes as the interest in our tea company was outstanding.
