(Neb.)-CHS Students To Participate In Business And Industry Day
(Chadron)- Next Thursday many area businesses will participate in the Chadron Business and Industry Day. Chadron High School Principal Jerry Mack said in his blog at chadronschools.org that this is the first year for Chadron to host high school students as they explore local industries for career interest and job opportunities.
According to Mack, Business and Industry Day is sponsored by the Chadron Chamber of Commerce, Chadron State College, Nebraska Business Development Center, and the Nebraska Workforce Department. Area high school juniors and seniors have been invited to participate. Students will be welcomed and given a brief orientation on the CSC campus before choosing to ride a bus to two of four career tracks.
Students can expect the business and industry tour hosts to provide hands-on, interactive activities when sharing information about their business and field; highlight the education, skills, and post-secondary requirements needed; focus on job and career opportunities and the future of their industry; introduce any employees who might be able to give a "new to the field" perspective on the job or on any education or training they might have just completed to qualify them for the job; and inform student participants who may already be qualified to work or point out which positions students might obtain which require a High School Diploma or equivalent.
For people who would like to follow some of the fun activities and events that the Chadron schools take part in, the website also offers information from principals at each of the other schools in the Chadron school district.
