The Logan County Career Expo returns to Indian Lake High School Thursday, March 24, for area high schoolers and adult job seekers alike.
Area high school juniors and seniors have been invited to participate in the sixth annual event from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event opens to the public from 3 to 5 p.m.
Representatives from approximately 90 local businesses, industries and the military will be showcasing job opportunities and information about their companies and industries.
Participating schools include Bellefontaine, Benjamin Logan, Indian Lake, Kenton, Ridgemont, Riverside and Upper Scioto Valley Schools. Each school will attend the expo during a pre-arranged time block.
During the expo, participants will have the opportunity to interact and interview representatives regarding the career opportunities available now and in the future. In addition, students interested in the military will be provided the opportunity to speak with recruiters.
High school is not only a stepping stone to employment, enlistment, or enrollment, but a time when teens have the opportunity to explore what interests them.
“The ‘3 E’ initiative strives to create opportunities for students to have a solid grasp when they graduate if they intend to be employed, enlisted or enrolled,” organizers said. “Finding the ‘E’ that fits their goals and passion is an important step. A successful future is fueled by career exploration in high school.”
The expo is an outcome of the Logan County Collaborative. It is coordinated by the Midwest Regional Educational Service Center in partnership with Logan County Chamber of Commerce, Logan County Job and Family Services, local school administrators and committee members from local businesses.
