Workforce Solutions Borderplex Seeking Businesses for Fall JobCon Series Events

Workforce Solutions Borderplex (WSB) is actively seeking dynamic employers to take part in its two Fall 2018 JobCon events for Far West and Far East El Paso County.

Geared towards high school students, the JobCon Series provides a platform where Borderplex youth learn about the in-demand careers of the Borderplex region from the actual workers employed by some of the most coveted businesses.

Companies who are interested in taking part in one of the JobCon events must bring an engaging interactive exhibit where students can get hands-on experience in that industry. JobCons provide a wonderful opportunity for local employers to engage with their community, mentor youth, and showcase and highlight the impactful elements of their work.

The JobCon Series was developed to captivate the interest and educate high school students in the Borderplex region about the high-demand careers that are available in their communities. Students will leave this event knowledgeable about the diverse range of career opportunities available in their area, as well as the skills needed to acquire these jobs.

The deadline for businesses to register to take part in the JobCon Series is August 6, 2018.
