.i! ......... OCTOBER 2, 2013 THE PRESS PAGE 7 GRAND FORKS, N.D• -- Ex- hibitor registration is open for the 2nd annual Northern Valley Career Expo Wednesday, Nov. 13 at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks. Companies in Northeast North Dakota and Northwest Minnesota are invited to use the event as an opportunity to attract their future workforce by showcasing career opportunities they can offer• "This Expo is just one way we are working to address the preva- lent need to retain youth in the re- gion to meet our growing work- force demands," said Grand Forks Region EDC Vice President Keith Lund. "I encourage businesses to get involved by exhibiting and highlighting the diverse opportuni- ties students will find in the North- em Valley." The Expo is designed to edu- cate high school sophomores about oppommities available with North- em Red River Valley employers as they begin career exploration. In a survey of students who at- tended last year's inaugural expo, 83 percent indicated the Expo in- creased their interest to pursue a career in the region• In addition to introductory sem- inars, students tour a showcase floor where businesses have hands- on exhibits designed to let students experience the type of work they could be doing with companies and the skills necessary to become a future employee. Unlike a job fair, which focuses on recruiting employees immedi- ately, a career expo is an educa- tional opportunity for students. "We believe our regional busi- nesses understand the value of planting the seed with potential employees," said Lund. "We hope any company that expects to grow in the next four years or more, or is planning to fill positions due to re- tirements and other turnover, will seriously consider exhibiting at the career expo as a part of their prepa- rations." Sectors represented through business and industry exhibits in- clude social services, healthcare, manufacturing, business and fi- nance, engineering, and informa- tion technology.
