SUCCESS WITH YOUR NEXT EMPLOYEES LEADS TO NEED FOR NEW EPIC STAFFER
There’s only one way to describe the importance of 4,200 students from 29 area high schools eagerly exploring career opportunities in 2022. It’s been EPIC, the Exploring Potential Interests and Careers program that introduces students to real-life jobs and employers to really interested future workers!
More than 300 area employers and partners, together with the GSDC, have made EPIC an outstanding community collaborative that is always creating new opportunities. In fact, the program has grown so much that we’re pleased to announce the need for a fulltime EPIC Coordinator, who will work under the direction of GSDC Talent Director, Gail Cruikshank.
