Looking back at iWork2017
Workforce Solutions for North Central Texas partnered with Navarro College in Waxahachie, Texas to host iWork: Youth Career Exploration Event on Friday, September 29th 2017. This event generated over 300+ students from Ellis, Navarro, Kaufman, Johnson, Hood, and Somervell counties. Having school representatives attend iWork with their students gave them the opportunity to help them discover career and training opportunities in exciting in-demand occupations. 18 local business partners attended the event to provide hands-on demonstrations of tools used in their industry along with 9 community resource partners to assist students on their pathway to success. Four distinct breakout workshops were available for students to attend and learn more about: Career Pathways, How to Represent Themselves to an Employer, and The Power of Social Media.
