Description

2014 Exploration Opportunities (CEO) Expo Make plans to attend the 4th Annual Career Exploration Opportunities (CEO) Expo, Tuesday October 28th at the Jackson County Fairgrounds. The CEO Expo is a career exploration event for 9th graders from Jackson County and Scottsboro City Schools to create awareness of career options among students and educators as well as help give our businesses and industries the skilled workforce needed to sustain and grow. Hands on activities and interactive displays help students to discover career opportunities in this area. Prepare a HANDS-ON activity for students to engage in during their stop at your booth. For example: mixing mortar and laying bricks or drawing blood from mannequins. If you are struggling to come up with ideas for your company, we will be happy to assist you in developing interesting and career-specific activities. The first Expo was held in 2011. The program is one of the steps in an organized plan of selecting a career and beginning career preparation. Ninth graders from every school in Jackson County attended with 600-700 students participating each year. After witnessing the success of this hands-on career fair, we believe it is essential that we continue to offer this opportunity to the youth in Jackson County. Business and industry leaders, workforce development and career representatives, along with school representatives are collaborating and partnering to make this event bigger and better each year. This event will be crucial to influencing the workforce of tomorrow by educating students today on the vast availability of careers in our Northeast Alabama region. We are confident you will agree when you see the program for yourself!
