  • Career field outlook
  • Upward Mobility
  • Technologies used
  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Staying up-to-date in your field and professional development
  • Current job openings
  • Entry level positions
  • Approximate salaries
  • Words of wisdom

Make these Engaging – It’s a must!

  • Digital presentations
  • Tours
  • Work product samples
  • Instruments, artifacts, & tools of the trade
  • Industry problem-solving exercises
