Talk & Tour Career Series

 

Talk and Tour Career Series graphic

    

 

The Talk & Tour Series is an career exploration program designed to increase awareness of diverse careers available in high demand career sectors.

Due to COVID-19 and the continued uncertainty, we are pivoting to a virtual Talk & Tour format. Below is the list of current events. Our local employers continue to book dates, so please check back.

Through an informal "talk show style" format, a virtual panel of professionals in select industries will share their own career path, the inside scoop on what their jobs are really like, along with their perspective on what you can do to prepare for a career that interests you.  This is your chance to ask questions (through the chat feature), get valuable career information and take an action step in figuring out your own career direction.  A virtual tour of the host site may be provided, with a special focus on seeing the latest technology and innovation happening in the workplace. A variety of industries and occupations will be highlighted.

Parents/guardians are encouraged to participate.
