Do you want to connect with Middle and High School Students to come work for you someday? Do they know what your company does?  Do they know what opportunities exist with your organization? 

We are now officially recruiting businesses to participate in the 2021 Live Virtual Future Careers Expo Event.  This year the Chamber’s Foundation is partnering with Central PA Workforce Development Corporation (CPWDC) and PA CareerLink to bring a more robust virtual event aimed at educating students about the diverse paths to a successful career.  We hope that your business/organization will participate.  This is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet with students and share with them what types of work your business does, and what types of jobs make your organization work.  This is an educational opportunity and not a “job fair”.   We want students to walk away inspired to follow a career path that might lead to your company.

  • Date:  Thursday, May 6, 2021
  • Time:  10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
