SCC to Host Advanced Manufacturing Career Fair

10/13/2014

West Burlington, IA- Southeastern Community College (SCC) will host an Advanced Manufacturing Career Fair on October 22 at the West Burlington campus.  The fair will be held from 4pm to 7pm in Loren Walker Arena.

The event is sponsored by “The Link” at SCC, an Iowa Intermediary Network program focused on connecting business to education.  The network is comprised of members from Greater Burlington Partnership, Lee County Economic Development Group, Mt. Pleasant Chamber Alliance, Great Prairie Education Agency, Iowa Workforce and SCC.

The goal of the event is to connect the workplace and the classroom across the Southeast Iowa region to students in grades 6 through 12. Professionals from local business and industries will highlight jobs in the region and promote career exploration.

“Our goal is to demonstrate manufacturing career opportunities in our region, and break down the stereotypes that many have about manufacturing industries,” says SCC Work-Based Learning Specialist, Leanne Krogmeier.

In addition to local industries, representatives from Elevate Iowa and SCC will be on hand to talk with those in attendance about choosing a career in the Advanced Manufacturing field and the educational opportunities available to them locally.
