Join us for the 2016 Youth Career Expo!

We extend the invitation to all employers and businesses to join Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas and our partners for the 2nd annual Youth Career Expo - "Connect to Your Future!" Over 90 exhibitors representing various industries were on hand last year at Ford Park to demonstrate a myriad of occupations to 1,800 Southeast Texas high school students.

This year, we are expanding the Expo to include more occupations, jobs and career opportunities and school districts. We request your participation to exhibit your business' occupations and job requirements with an interactive, hands-on display designed to engage the students, the "workforce of the future".
