Dear parents/guardians and students,
The East Irondequoit school district would like to invite you to the first ever Skilled Labor Forum to be held on Saturday, November 18 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm at Eastridge High School for students in grades 7-12.
You and your child will have the opportunity to hear from and interact with a variety of representatives from successful local companies that are in need of career minded employees.
The forum will begin with each company representative speaking briefly about what it is their company does, the employment opportunities within their company and post high school training/educational requirements for the different career opportunities within their company; most which do not require a four year college degree. They will also inform the students of high school classes that students should enroll in to provide a solid foundation from which to build on for these careers.
We are also fortunate to have the Program Coordinator for the Applied Technology Center at Monroe Community College who will be speaking about the areas of need in the skilled labor workforce and also about the various training opportunities provided at the center (training that directly relates to the skills required for many of the companies that will be in attendance).
We will end the program with a mini-career fair, at which time you will be able to talk directly to the company representatives.
As we will be providing breakfast pizza along with drinks, and the companies will be bringing information for you to take home we would like you to please RSVP so we can make plans based on the number of people attending.
To RSVP: fill out the information below, tear it off and return it to either main office or the counseling center at the High School, or go to the East lrondequoit web site (www.eastiron.org), click on the Skilled Labor Forum link and fill out the registration information.
We hope to see you on November 18th
