What is the Career Expo?

The Career Expo is how we match local students with amazing career opportunities located right in their backyard.

‚Äč

Several years ago we started with an idea - match local high school students with local business leaders so they know the careers and opportunities that exist in small towns. Each student takes a survey, then we match them with a panel who can answer their questions and help them understand a career path. Thanks to feedback from previous years, this year the students will each meet with all the panels.

Give back to local students

You or your organization can give back to students in two important ways. We're looking for sponsors to help pay for prizes, lunch for the students, our lunch speaker, and our student career guide. We are also looking for speakers that would be willing to sit on the panels. For more information click SPEAK or SPONSOR.

Career Clusters & Pathways

Career Clusters & Pathways are essentially career fields and their associated jobs within those fields. Many students don't realize that within a certain career pathway, such as Manufacturing, there exist within hundreds of types of specific jobs and careers within.
