Employer Connect

Employer Connect provides a format of transparency where area employers can share information about career pathways, career progressions and earning potential for these roles. This transparency helps students make informed decisions about their career pathways and the education required to attain their destination careers.

Employer Connect lets local employers see how Career+ supports the development of the workforce needed to remain productive, profitable, and competitive in the future. Through Employer Connect, employers can also invite students to participate in industry tours, internships, work-based learning opportunities, career events, and interviews.
