WITC-NR to host Health & Business Career Expo

Is a health or business career right for you?

WITC will hold a Health & Business Career Expo from 3-6 p.m. on Feb. 6, at the New Richmond campus. This event will benefit current and potential students and local businesses with careers in health and/or business fields.

WITC ensures that students receive career relevant instruction by maintaining partnerships with local businesses. This guarantees that graduates are well prepared to enter the workforce. The quality of instructors and the attention to current business trends are part of why employment rates after graduation is at 100 percent for many programs. WITC Administrative Professional graduate, Michelle Marshall chose WITC exactly for that reason.

"I was able to gain and develop the skills that I needed to enter the competitive job market," Marshall said.

The expo is one example of how WITC supports students from the first inquiry through graduation and successful employment. It will provide an opportunity to have meaningful one-on-one conversations with instructors and businesses to make sure WITC and your field of interest is the right fit to meet your career goals. There will also be hands-on demonstrations of skills learned in the classroom.

"Education is something that can never be taken away from you but it is something that can always be added to," said Marshall, now a WITC employee. "WITC was the first step in changing and shaping me in ways that I never would have imagined."

Marshall encourages people to attend events like the Health & Business Career Expo to gain a better understanding of how you can prepare for your future and open doors that you never thought existed. Learn how the WITC experience leads to success.
