PIQUA — Upper Valley Career Center will welcome sophomores from area schools to their campus in Piqua for the annual Explore Careers Day On Wednesday, Nov. 30.
“Students will visit Upper Valley for an hour, spending time in two programs that they chose in advance.” said Andrew Snyder, recruitment coordinator.
During their visit, students will see the labs in action, get to ask questions, participate in hands-on activities, and maybe even leave with something they have made in those labs.
“We have no better recruitment tool than getting kids in our building so they can see first-hand all that the Career Center has to offer,” he said.
The following evening – Thursday, Dec. 1, UVCC will hold an open house from 6-7:30 p.m. The event is for prospective students to visit the school again and share their experience first-hand with the important decision-makers in their life. Instructors and staff will be on hand to answer questions about the programs, the local job market, and any other questions.
The online application will go live at 6 p.m. on the night of open house, and can be accessed by visiting www.uppervalleycc.org. This way, those who choose to visit the Career Center open house in person are welcome to do so, and those who are unable to visit have the same opportunity to enroll.
“We have worked to develop and maintain solid online content for each program – including videos of the labs, photos, and testimonials. Our hope is that this content will help students and their families get to know us a little better, especially if they are not able to attend Explore Career Day or the Open House,” said Snyder.
