Countdown to the start of Career Discovery 2018!
We invite you to be a part of Career Discovery!
Central AlabamaWorks, Region 5 (Autauga, Bullock, Chambers, Coosa, Dallas, Elmore, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Montgomery, Perry, Russell, and Tallapoosa counties) has a diverse and unique set of industries, businesses, non-profits and career opportunities. Central AlabamaWorks presents its career exploration events, Career Discovery, at the Southern Union State Community College in the fall and at Trenholm State Community College in the spring.
Each career cluster offers interactive, hands-on activities that allow students to examine particular jobs, courses of study, and career fields. During previous Career Discovery Expos, students have explored Energy and Utilities by riding a bike to power lights, music, and a bubble machine. They have experimented with Architecture and Construction by drafting plans for a bridge or building a brick wall. They have personally experienced Communication and Technology by reading the news or weather in front of a camera. Make plans to join us to find out what interactive activities will be available at our upcoming Career Expos.
The industry, business and career opportunities showcased at Career Discovery are be divided into eleven career clusters (click the icons below to learn more):
Career Discovery Expos host over 4,000 students, teachers, counselors, parent chaperones, volunteers, sponsors, partners and exhibitors. Each student receives a Career Discovery Student Guide, containing information on what it takes for career success and an introduction to our eleven career clusters.
