Student career fair offers Cape-based blue economy careers

Brewster resident Tricia Teixeira Santoianni has returned to school with an eye toward Cape Cod’s blue economy.

Santoianni already holds undergraduate and advanced degrees and had a career in sales and marketing.

Now, she’s back at school, earning an associate degree at Cape Cod Community College in West Barnstable. Her focus is environmental science and the blue economy. She’s working on a certificate in coastal zone management and she’s also fulfilling a 50-hour internship in January by helping to organize the blue economy WaterWORKS career day on Tuesday at the school.

The fourth annual career fair is about jobs, careers and making the region a permanent place to live — based on the growing blue economy.

The fair brings together more than 400 juniors and seniors chosen from high schools in Barnstable, Dukes, Nantucket and southern Plymouth counties, to participate in a half-day of demonstrations, exhibits, face-to-face conversations and hands-on activities.

Brewster resident Tricia Teixeira Santoianni is studying environmental science and blue economy at Cape Cod Community College in West Barnstable.  Her internship this month is helping to organize the blue economy WaterWORKS career day for high students on Tuesday at the college.

Job opportunities for a diverse Cape Cod workforce
