Looking Back at iWork2018
Workforce Solutions for North Central Texas partnered with Education Service Center Region 11 to host iWork2018: Youth Career Exploration Event on Tuesday, September 4th, 2018. This event generated over 1,200+ students from Denton, Johnson, Palo Pinto, Parker, Somervell and Wise 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. 81 local business partners and colleges attended the event to provide hands-on demonstrations of tools used in their industry and discuss career paths and educational/skills requirements. 287 students participated in iCoach (mock interview) sessions with workforce professionals to help students prepare for their next job interview. Students and teachers also enjoyed the iChat sessions where professionals discussed jobs in the Digital Technology field, The Do’s and Don’ts of Social Media and Life After High School. The Texas Workforce Commission and Texas Vocational Rehabilitation representatives were on hand to demonstrate free tools available to students and educators to help students explore a variety of career pathways.
