Rotary has taken on the task of keeping our kids on the Ridge! This project is designed to inspire local youth to see a career path in their own backyard. This will help support business and could also provide lasting employment opportunities for our young adults.
The first step of this two-phased project was the very successful, Rotary hosted, Career Expo (Exposure), held in the new Paradise High School gym last November. Over 1,000 students attended, and more than 90 local industry professionals representing in-demand career fields from across the county were there to provide information including minimum qualifications, educational requirements, salary expectations and more.
Rotary’s goal with the Career Expo was to show students there is a path to stay local. At the event they were exposed to a variety of career paths preparing them for the next chapter of their educational journey. Students were given the opportunity to meet potential future employers. And it gave the local businesses/employers a chance to share their employment needs and to interact with the future of the workforce on the ridge.
If you’re looking for employment opportunities or, if you’re looking to hire someone, please join us. The 2023 Career Expo is intended to connect Employers with potential Employees. There will be local businesses looking to hire and educational pathway resources to gain the skills needed for employment.
Right now skilled labor is in high demand so we are looking to connect people to the local employers and the educational resources needed to have a successful career. Please join us if you are either interested in looking for a job or looking to offer internship opportunities or hire someone to work with your organization.
