NCI Works is launching a new initiative, a series of educational meetings intended to spotlight a select industry at each of its meeting. Representatives from the selected industry will be invited to provide information on the current environment/trends of the industry, challenges the industry is facing, most important skills needed, qualities most desired by employers, hiring opportunities within our local area, salary ranges for our area, what is good about working in that field, what might be not-so-good about working in that field, etc. After each meeting, staff will put together an educational piece based on the presentations, which will be distributed to schools, libraries, stakeholders and others that can benefit from this information. In addition, BEST, Inc. has contracted with a social media firm that is going to work with staff to put together a podcast after each meeting again sharing the information that was provided on our featured industry.
NCI Works meeting schedule can be found on the NCI Works website at www.nciworks.org. Meetings are open to the public.
