Lakeshore Advantage and the Ottawa Area Careerline Tech Center are excited to announce employer registration for the 2020 Senior Expo is now OPEN!
 
The 2020 Senior Expo is a hiring event held on April 14, 2020 from 8a-11:30a at the Hope College DeVos Fieldhouse. Schools throughout the Ottawa Area Intermediate School District are invited to bring their high school seniors to the expo where they will have a unique opportunity to talk with local employers in a wide variety of industries about job opportunities. Due to the incredible success of last year’s inaugural event, participation at the expo will be expanded. Already, student sign-ups have increased from 1,200 to 2,000. In addition, organizers are opening up additional exhibitor space to bring the number of employers up from 54 in 2019 to 70 in 2020.
 
“Employers continue to tell us that finding great talent is their number one barrier to growth,” said Mandy Cooper, Director of Talent Initiatives at Lakeshore Advantage. “That makes our high school seniors extremely important to our region’s long-term economic health and vitality. Our local companies really do need these students– whether that’s immediately after graduation or in a few years once they’ve completed their education. By participating in the 2020 Senior Expo, employers can help our soon-to-be graduates see their long-term career potential here on the lakeshore by sharing information on jobs, salaries and key benefits like tuition reimbursement.”
 
Note: Proceeds from the event are given to the Ottawa Area Intermediate School District to assist local schools with covering the cost of transportation to work-based learning activities like field trips, job shadows internships and more!
