The Montgomery County Commerce Department and MontcoWorks are pleased to announce an upcoming multi-industry career expo for Montgomery County students in grades 8th through 12th. The ManuFest and More event had primarily focused on careers in manufacturing and trades. This year, we have rebranded and expanded the event, now known as Careers of Tomorrow Expo. In addition to promoting careers in manufacturing and building trades, exhibitors are invited to represent careers in healthcare, energy, social assistance, information technology, public safety, education, and other industries that have a critical need to develop a talent pipeline in Montgomery County.
This event is “career-awareness” focused and is an excellent opportunity for students, parents, and educators to connect with local employers, experience activities, see product demonstrations, and learn about different career paths in various industries.
MontcoWorks has invested in an amazing resource for all public middle schools and high schools in Montgomery County! This is a HUGE investment and gift to help support college and career awareness and prepare young people to make informed decisions about a pathway to success that’s right for them!
Montco Career Connections is an online platform that connects educators and learners with a network of industry professionals, virtually, bringing real-world relevance and career exposure to all students. In addition, the platform also provides a skills-based volunteering for organizations to extend education outreach, and build their brand among the future workforce.
