2019 Southwest Minnesota Career Expo gives students a preview of the many wonderful career & educational opportunities in Southwest Minnesota!
The Southwest Minnesota CareerForce Expo was held on Sept. 24th and 25th 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 Department of Employment and Economic Development
Minnesota West Carl Perkins Consortium
Minnesota West Community and Technical College
Southwest Minnesota Private Industry Council
Southwest Minnesota State University
SW/WC 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.
