Career Connect will bring a busload of students from each local public high school in the BRCC service area to tour at least two advanced manufacturing or logistics work sites to see first hand the numerous high demand career options and technology driven work applications available at these sites, as well at other manufacturing facilities in the Shenandoah Valley. The other half of the student's Career Connect day will be spent at BRCC exploring in-demand careers, certifications and credentials, technical career fields, career pathways, and the soft skills needed to both obtain and keep employment. Career Connect is brought to area schools by local Economic Development Commissions, Cadence, the Community Foundation, and Blue Ridge Community College in collaboration with local school systems. Students should wear sneakers or closed toe and heel shoes for tours. The public is welcome to come to BRCC for the event kickoff on October 2nd.
