CTC Holds First Career Signing Day Ceremony

Most people are probably familiar with the various College & Sports Signing Day events held around the country where a student has been recruited to play college athletics or offered a scholarship to a particular college or university. The student, sometimes their future coach and their parents, are often seen at a table signing their “letter of intent” to attend the school and fulfill the terms of their contract.

In recent years, Career & Tech Centers around the country have also started to shine a spotlight on their students – only in this instance -- it’s in recognition of the hard work students have put in to learn the training program competencies, master skills and attain a level of expertise desired by prospective employers in their field. This is something the Cape Chamber is thrilled to see come to life in our community. 

 

Thursday, April 25, 2019 marked the FIRST Signing for Success – Career Signing Day ceremony held at CTC to celebrate the students who have obtained Full-Time employment in their industry-specific training sector.

 

In order to be considered for this honor, students had to meet the following criteria with regard to employment:

1. The student must be a graduating high school senior or adult student currently enrolled in a CTC 9-month technical training program.

2. The student must have secured FULL-TIME Employment or will be going to work FULL-TIME after graduation/completion of CTC training program. Please Note: Internships do not qualify -- it must be full-time employment.

3. The job must fall within the student’s industry-specific training program.

4. Though we fully respect and value those students that have signed up for the military, we realize that this is a separate venture and is not in alignment with the Career Signing Day objective. Students who sign up for military service are recognized and given a separate ceremony when they take their oath of service to our country.

 

We are incredibly proud to recognize these fifteen students who have worked hard and who possess not only talent, but character, work ethic and integrity. We also acknowledge and thank their instructors, their hiring companies and finally, the parents, grandparents, partners and family members who have supported, cheered and urged these students do their best and help them get to this moment today. We wish you all the best in your future careers!!
