York Regional Career Day

speaker

class

Each spring, with the help from the local schools and several partners, York County Development Corporation facilitates the Regional Career day.  This March 25th, 2020, the Career day will have Keynote speaker Brent Comstock and 24 area business professionals across 6 different industries in attendance to discuss what it is they do within their careers and what opportunities are available to the students, if they choose to have a career in York County. The professionals will be divided into panels based upon their industry.  The 6 industries that we had represented were: 1) Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources 2) Human Services & Education 3) Communications & Information Systems 4) Business, Marketing & management 5) Skilled & Technical Sciences 6) Health Services. Returning this year is the Job Fair, but with a twist. The job fair will be a breakout session featuring employers that could hire any of the attending students while in school, or immediately following graduation.

This year, we will have our keynote speaker present to all high school students in York County between two different sessions. This year’s keynote speaker is all too familiar with growing up in a small town. Brent Comstock is an entrepreneur, rural advocate, and venture capitalist. Brent’s passion for building a stronger, connected rural America has fueled his personal and professional growth.

Brent’s professional journey began when he was just 12 years old with the creation of BCom Solutions. In less than a decade, Brent transformed the business from a rural Nebraska company to the leading digital agency for rural America. BCom uses their digital expertise to help rural campaigns, companies and causes succeed.

Brent is also the founder of the Rural Impact Hub -- a community center for creativity, conversation, and innovation. The program brings together organizations, community boards, and businesses with one goal in mind: build a sustainable, thriving rural ecosystem.

He is a Southeast Nebraska native and grew up in a town with just two stop lights.
