York Regional Career Day
Each spring, with the help from the local schools and several partners, York County Development Corporation facilitates the Regional Career day. On March 24th, 2021, the Career day had Aaron Davis and 16 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 were 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.
170 students from 8 schools across 5 counties attended York County Career Day on March 24th, 2021 from 8:30 to noon. Career Day was an excellent opportunity for students to learn about the strong business ecosystem found within York County. During the event students were introduced to exciting career opportunities - careers that often come with advancement opportunities, benefits and college reimbursement programs.
