May 6-10 is In-Demand Jobs Week in Ohio, and Pioneer Career and Technology Center is hosting two events this Tuesday highlighting the many in-demand careers Pioneer students are working toward.
Five Pioneer students will participate in a signing day. Two masonry students will be signing for apprenticeships with the Local #40 Bricklayers Union. Two industrial electricity students will be signing with IBEW JATC Electrical Union and one carpentry student will be signing with the Carpenters Local Union #735.
Sheryl Maxfield, director of the Ohio Department of Commerce, and David Glass, Central Ohio Regional Liaison representing Lt. Governor Jon Husted, will be present at the signings.
“The purpose of In-Demand Jobs Week is to highlight the great careers available in Ohio and how to get the education and training you need to get started,” said Lt. Governor Jon Husted. “Businesses need talent and if you have the right kind of skills and training it can lead to a rewarding career. We want to help Ohioans, young and old, build the skills they need to earn more and support a good quality of life for themselves and their families.”
Pioneer Career and Technology Center will also host the Ohio Department of Commerce for a tour of the Carpentry, Engineering Design Technology, Home Remodeling, Industrial Electricity, Masonry and Welding labs. A panel discussion will immediately follow to educate students on the career outlook of skilled jobs and what they need to know as they launch their careers in these specialized trades.
In-Demand Jobs Week is an opportunity for students and job seekers to learn more about the rewarding and high-demand careers available locally. To find a list of In-Demand Jobs Week events in your area, click here.
