 Career Awareness Critical to Students

11/13/2018 8:00 AM

​The Rockford Chamber of Commerce has worked diligently over many years to ensure that students and employers can connect and be aware of the careers available in our region. We are at a time when quality workforce is scarce and where students need to receive the best information and experience they can on career choices. On Oct. 11 the Rockford Chamber, the Career Education Associates of North Central Illinois and other partners hosted the Rockford Region Manufacturing Day. We paired 12 high schools, including all within RPS 205, with various manufacturers in the region for tours and education on a career in manufacturing. Over 400 students participated in the tours, a general session, and a manufacturing expo. The students were very interested and amazing! The manufacturers were incredibly impressed! Career exposures don't have to wait for special days like this one. Reach out as a school to area employers, or vice versa. There are many willing partners!
