Is your local qualified applicant talent pool too small to meet your hiring needs? Would you like the chance to ‘test-drive’ a potential employee’s fit in your workplace or company culture? Are you having difficulty solving your entry-level job requirements? Join other local businesses to learn more about how to resolve these labor market challenges by engaging young adults in your local workforce.

Increased employability also translates into increased spending power in local communities. Career Connected Learning can become the catalyst for increasing job-readiness of young people by addressing chronic unemployment issues, and creating a stronger, burgeoning workforce.

Governor Jay Inslee, along with business and education leaders, will address next steps to provide more Washington young people with the work experience and real-world skills that can help YOUR business thrive. Join us at one of more than 25 regional sites across the state.

We’ve made it easy for you to attend wherever you are in the state.

The Career Connected Learning Summit will be simultaneously hosted in Redmond, and at regional sites around the state where smaller groups will discuss how to make positive changes at the local level. Get more details and find the site nearest you when you register below.

The Summit is set for Wednesday, May 31 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
