Looking for a new talent pool? Dip into CTC Workforce Wednesdays!
The CTC is continuing its WORKFORCE WEDNESDAYS program this school year and we are looking for businesses to take part in the program.

We know that business & industry has a constant need for workers; getting talent and opportunity to connect isn't always easy, and we want to help match our students with your company's workforce needs. To help make this a reality, CTC is asking area businesses to sign up for one of our Workforce Wednesday events. We know that when people make face-to-face connections, they are more likely to remember the experience and build on that relationship. We want our students & instructors to learn about the tremendous companies & opportunities that are right here in our local area! The program will run from September through early May and businesses can choose a convenient date to set up and spend the day at the CTC.

Once a business signs up for a Workforce Wednesday date, information is blasted out to CTC students, instructors, and staff to let them know what business will be visiting each week. Students then drop in on their morning and afternoon breaks to visit with that week's featured employer. Businesses are encouraged to share information about their company, inform students about internship & employment opportunities, and help educate students & instructors about the types of skills & qualities they looking for when hiring. Companies can even conduct on-the-spot interviews. Last year we had some companies sign students up for internships and a few hired students while they were here! With 20+ training programs, we have a wealth of skills and talent waiting to fit your company’s hiring needs.

There is no cost to participate in the program -- we simply ask that you let us know if you hire one of our students. Our hope is that both your company and our students will come away with a greater awareness of the opportunities and talent available here locally and that it's a win-win opportunity for both parties. As an added bonus, visiting businesses are invited to join us for our legendary lunch buffet hosted by our culinary arts program from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.!

If you are interested in getting on the WORKFORCE WEDNESDAY schedule or have questions, please contact Workforce Development Coordinator, Kathleen Clayton at claytonk@capetigers.com | 573-334-0826 ext. 6513.
