CareerSource Suncoast and CareerSource Research Coast have reached an agreement to provide students in Port St. Lucie, Martin County and Indian River County an opportunity to explore college and careers.
CareerSource Suncoast and CareerSource Research Coast have partnered to provide students in Port St Lucie, Martin County and Indian River County an opportunity to attend the 2018 State of Jobs Conference exclusively for their region. CareerSource Research Coast will utilize the structure first developed by CareerSource Suncoast to roll out a conference experience for high school students to learn more about the careers they’re interested in. The 2018 State of Jobs Conference (SOJC) now includes SOJC West and SOJC East, and will both develop the same schedule with the only differences being the selection of industry tracks that focus on high-demand industries in the individual region. This year, CareerSource Research Coast have selected to offer three tracks including healthcare, manufacturing and skilled trades.
“We are so excited about being able to expand our reach in helping students find purpose through a great career. The talent pipeline challenges we face are not only local challenges, but statewide and even nationally. We welcome the opportunity to utilize our platform to help students learn what’s out there.” Says Chris Laney, Director of Education and Community Investment for CareerSource Suncoast.
SOJC East will be held at the Port St Lucie Civic Center on October 25th, 2018 and is expected to have nearly 900 students in attendance. SOJC West will be held on October 30th, 2018 at Robarts Arena in Sarasota and is expected to have nearly 1,200 high school students during the day and 300 college students in the evening.
