Area employers and educators are invited to attend the Youth Roundtable event on Wednesday, Sept. 13, from 8-10:30 a.m. at the Missouri Job Center, 2900 E. Sunshine, in meeting rooms Dogwood A & B. Junior and senior high school students from the Ozark Region will discuss their views on future employer expectations, career goals, impact of social media, and other topics. Employers from all industries will get the opportunity to hear directly from the future workforce and engage with them one-on-one following the discussion. Breakfast will be provided.
The Youth Roundtable is a continuation of several other industry specific roundtables that have been held at the Missouri Job Center to address employer needs. Additionally, youth attendees will be able to network with potential future employers and become more informed about all career path options. The Missouri Job Center’s goal is to continue assisting in the needs of the local workforce and employers to maintain and grow the Ozark Region’s sustainability. In the long term, this event will continue to help employers learn how to attract the up-and-coming workforce.
