The GSDC Talent Corps hosted counselors and career technical education instructors from ISD 742 (St. Cloud Public School District) for a professional development day on January 16. The purpose of the event was to help the educators understand and promote skilled job careers in our Central MN region.
Three local companies partnered in showcasing careers in three industries: manufacturing, construction and transportation. Participating companies included Park Industries, W. Gohman Construction and Brenny Transportation. Participants received tours and observed a panel discussion about careers and educational requirements in all three fields.
Educators and counselors play key roles in encouraging and directing the career interests of students. This event provided them with information about local in-demand opportunities.
