Are you interested in seeing what workforce training is available at Big Bend Community College?  Are you interested in seeing what that training could translate to as far as local employment?

If you answered yes to these questions, join us on November 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. inside the Masto Conference Center for the “Explore Big Bend: Train Local, Work Local,” event.

Come out and fly a drone, climb into a semi-truck, experience virtual reality and get hands-on and experience the many employment options available locally. Find something that interests you, and then learn what it takes to turn that interest into a career.

“This event is geared towards trying to keep our local talent here in our area,” said BBCC Career Services Coordinator Jody Bortz. “We want to bring awareness to the many employment and training options that are available in our community.”

This will be the only hiring event in Moses Lake featuring this many representatives from both the training and employment side of the employment process. Learn about the more than 20 programs offered at Big Bend Community College, and also speak with local employers that can talk with you about possible employment opportunities that can result from the training.

Both employers and potential employees always find this event helpful.

“Sonico has participated the majority of Big Bend’s hiring events, and they are always well attended,” said Sonico’s Kelly McCracken.  “They are a valuable option for us as we like to hire young people with ties to the community.”

More than 80 employers are expected to attend allowing job seekers the opportunity to meet local industry, discuss potential job openings, and identify necessary training options.

“Many students don’t know, what they don’t know when it comes to future careers, post-secondary education and potential employment in the region,” said North Central Education Service District Transition Consultant, Ande Champman. “Career events, such as those offered through Big Bend Community College are valuable for students, teaching staff and regional employers. They help students to build connections and relevancy between high school coursework and the world after high school.”

This event is free and open to the public. Come and join us and find out how to “Train Here and Stay Here”.
