The event is being hosted by the Regional Technical Education Center (RTEC) as a way to showcase the products and career opportunities that exist with local and area manufacturers. It will be held at RTEC, located one block north of the YHS/Summit Activities Center at 1200 W. 21st St.
During the Career Expo, students, parents and school officials who attend will have an opportunity to meet with representatives from at least a dozen manufacturers to find out about wages, current and future job openings, and the types of skills or education levels they will need to prepare themselves for their future careers.
Free pizza and pop will be available for all those who attend and students who visit all of the booths can register to win an iPod.
