Out of an abundance of caution and concern, we've decided to cancel the iWork Youth Career Exploration event (originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 28th, at the Plano Event Center) due to concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19) and in accordance with health guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and other health authorities. While this was a difficult decision, we take seriously our social responsibility to put the health of staff, volunteers, students, educational partners and our communities first. We appreciate your understanding.

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 was attended by more than 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. More than 80 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.  During the event, 287 students participated in iCoach (mock interview) sessions with workforce professionals to help them 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.
