2019 Career Expo gives students a preview of the many wonderful career & educational opportunities in Southwest Minnesota!
Southwest Minnesota CareerForce Expo
was held on September 24 and September 25 at the college campuses of Southwest Minnesota State University–Marshall and Minnesota West-Worthington. The event provided valuable career and education information to high school students, plus highlighted regional businesses and the type of jobs they provide in our communities. During the two expo events we served over 1800 students from 32 schools, which involved teamwork from over 300+ volunteers from these partners:
- Minnesota West Carl Perkins Consortium
- Minnesota West Community and Technical College
- Southwest Minnesota State University
- SWWC Service Cooperative
- Southwest Regional Development Commission
- Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce
- Marshall Area Chambers of Commerce
- Regional businesses and service agencies
We had 135 total exhibitors from a large variety of career fields
and heard from several teachers, students, and exhibitors that it was a valuable opportunity to expose students to what Southwest Minnesota has to offer. New to the expo this year- opportunities for job-seekers to also connect with exhibitors.
