What is Worlds of Work?
The Worlds of Work Career Expo is a fun, educational, interactive, hands-on opportunity for students to become familiar with a broad overview of high-demand, high-wage career opportunities available in the region.
The purpose of this expo is to create awareness about exciting career options among students and educators while addressing workforce needs in the region. Existing employers in the region continue to have unfilled job openings due to a shortage of skilled workers. In addition, employers face additional shortages over the next few years due to retirements of up to 50% of their workforce.
