Businesses will have a chance to invest in students and veterans in the community during the Professional Development Day event at Chemeketa Community College’s Woodburn Center on Feb. 27.
Different than a job fair, Professional Development Day encourages businesses to seek out students looking not just for employment but job training, apprenticeships and education training to develop a career.
The event will feature an orientation from 9 to 10 a.m. with presentations currently scheduled from the Oregon National Guard, Oregon State Police, Key Bank and the U.S. Forest Service.
An expo from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. will have representatives from 20 businesses available to talk to students and veterans.
The event is sponsored by Chemeketa Veterans Services. If a business has questions about the event, contact Jon Terrazas, Chemeketa’s veterans coordinator, at 503.589.7702.
