Local businesses urged to participate in career fair Feb. 25.

SHELBY — Each year, nearly 45 businesses and 25 colleges showcase career and education options to over 200 Oceana County high school juniors in the Shelby High School gym.

Oceana College Access Network (Oceana CAN) relies on community sponsorship to support this event, which connects our community’s young people with area businesses.

The Oceana CAN College and Career Fair is a collective, focused effort, engaging students to learn about their community and help them discover their unique path to success. Local businesses and organizations display both their demand for certain kinds of talent and need to fill entry-level positions, while colleges and training centers share the diversity of post-secondary education paths.

Education after high school includes degrees, skilled trades training, certificate programs, or apprenticeships, all relevant and crucial to developing lifelong work abilities. This event provides a wide range of opportunities, informing students about the different work in our area and the post-secondary education that meets a growing need for a skilled workforce in our community.

All Oceana County high school juniors will personally meet, interact with, and ask questions about careers, education, skills and training with local professionals.

To provide a tax-deductible sponsorship or to reserve booth space for this event, visit https://oceanacan.org/resources/partner-programs or send a check to CFOC PO Box 902, Pentwater, MI 49449.

Your contribution to this event increases the collective impact of creating a culture in Oceana County that strives towards education after high school.
