Exploration Into Work
Exploration Into Work is a hands-on learning event to showcase career opportunities in our community for current students.
The event is set up to be interactive and really give the students a snapshot of what careers exist in our area, and learn how they can get started in what interests them!
Eastern Indiana Works engages employer partners from in-demand sectors to be featured at the events:
- Information Technology
- Transportation and Warehousing
- Specialty and Primary Food Processing
- Advanced and Additive Manufacturing
Exploration Into Work is geared toward Middle School and High School students exploring what career interests they may have regardless of education requirements. Eastern Indiana Works wants to grow the outlook of tomorrow's workforce to consider all of the opportunities in our region.
