22 Sep 2014 'Step up to Employment' planned Oct. 4 at UACCM
In recognition of Manufacturing Day, the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton plans to enhance community awareness of the demand for technical and professional education by hosting “Step up to Employment” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4. This event is designed to connect employers with future generations of employees as well as feature the numerous hands-on training programs offered at UACCM.
The goal of UACCM’s “Step up to Employment” event is to provide business representatives with an opportunity to meet future employees and discuss the shortage of skilled workers they currently face. UACCM has invited numerous businesses to set up booths next to the technical areas that provide training for them.
UACCM invites the public to drop in and learn about the value of technical training and how it links directly to employment opportunities. Unemployed and underemployed adults are encouraged to attend this event along with individuals considering the possibility of making a career change. Since junior and senior high students will benefit from exploring the numerous career options that are available, UACCM hopes families with students enrolled in the eighth through 12th grades will participate.
