Trinidad Workforce Center Hosts Career Exploration Event September 24

(TRINIDAD)  -- Governor Hickenlooper has declared September as Workforce Development Month, a time to focus on education, employment and economic growth.  Throughout the month, Workforce Centers across Colorado have offered a variety of special events for job seekers and employers.

One of the best is coming to Trinidad on September 24 when the Trinidad Workforce Center offers Informational Interviews for Career Exploration.

    When:    September 24, 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM

    Where:    Trinidad Workforce Center, 140 North Commercial Street, Trinidad, CO

An “informational interview” is a meeting in which a potential job seeker seeks advice about a career or industry and the corporate culture of a potential future workplace; at the same time, a representative of that industry can learn about the job seekers they talk with and judge their potential and fit to the corporate culture, thus building a candidate pool for future hires.

In these “informational interviews for career exploration,” representatives from several local businesses will be on-hand to talk with visitors about the industries they represent and how to be a successful candidate for careers in those businesses.
