Students discover career opportunities
Nearly 300 high school students from LaSalle, Bureau and Putnam counties have a new outlook on local career opportunities after attending the North Central Illinois Discover Manufacturing Career Expo on Oct. 23.
Carus Corporation, LCN in Princeton, Black Bros. in Mendota, Eakas in Peru, Vactor in Streator and MBL in Ottawa were the six local manufacturers who welcomed students to tour their facilities and learn more about career opportunities in manufacturing.
The Expo, hosted by the North Central Regional Betterment Coalition and its partners, Carus Corporation, Illinois Valley Community College (IVCC), Starved Rock Association for Vocational and Technical Education and NCI-Works, offered students opportunities to meet face-to-face with local employers. The Expo took place at Celebrations 150 in Utica. Manufacturers set up booths and presentations for students and the public. Attendees learned about educational requirements, job skills, salary projections and the types of positions available within the industry.
