Career Connections HUB

This high-school level, career exploration, beta-version platform currently connects students with manufacturing job information and opportunities. The online system will be expanded to include all 16 career clusters and training and education info and opportunities this fall/winter.
The fully interactive portal queries student’s interests to match and explore industry-provided high-need occupations. Students completing the experience will be matched with current offerings including career shadow opportunities, internships, part-time, full-time and seasonal work opportunities. PCD will work in-between, “hand” guiding students to schools and those opportunities.

Organizations can use the portal to promote their industry needs and provide info about jobs. PCD can also offer 360-degree virtual tour options to allow an immersive experience without safety issues and paperwork required to bring students into their facilities. PCD will work with fellow associations to gather relevant career information and include it, engaging students and helping them as they consider their life and career options post high school. To see the active (beta-version) of the Hub click here.
