Multiple Pathways to Career Success

May 7, 2015

Thank you for attending or having an interest in our second Community Conversation, which featured speakers about preparing for jobs that do not yet exist. There are multiple pathways to pursue these opportunities. If you are a guidance counselor, a parent of a middle or high school student or an influencer for these students, you learned how to guide your student to find the right option for his or her future career success.

About the Event

The meeting was open to all Johnson County residents and featured two presentations about the future of jobs and educational and training needs.
