Ottawa County

Career Showcase coming up in PC

Submitted by OCIC

To celebrate National Manufacturing Day, the Ottawa County Business Advisory Council is holding its fifth annual Ottawa County Career Showcase from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 5, at the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center in Port Clinton.

The Business Advisory Council is in its fifth year and is a collaborative effort between private sector and K-12 education to set the stage for students to engage with local companies and learn about career opportunities that exist in the same communities where they live, play and learn. The companies are able to engage students in different hands-on activities that demonstrate skill sets necessary to excel in a broad cross section of careers, including CNC, culinary/hospitality, electrical, engineering, emerging healthcare, machine operation, maintenance, and welding (among others). Businesses participating at the event include Materion Brush, U.S. Gypsum, Magruder Hospital, Davis Besse, Muffler Smiths, Graymont Dolime and many more.

“The students have the opportunity to explore careers in Ottawa County as they’re starting to think about what they want to do in life after high school,” said Jamie Beier Grant, director of the Ottawa County Improvement Corporation. “Whether they want to move to a four year degree, two year degree, or maybe look at attending a joint vocational school; the educational possibilities and local career opportunities are endless.”

We would like to personally invite you to stop out and see for yourself how much of an impact this event has on the students.
