Career Fair Connects Students to Jobs & Training Opportunities

As many as 2,300 students from Mobile County Public School’s 12 high schools along with ACCEL Academy, Chickasaw High School, Satsuma High School, and the MAEF Workforce Center attended the Mobile County High Schools Career Fair.

This event gave seniors, whether college-bound or career-bound, the chance to connect with local industry partners and learn about potential career opportunities.

More than 70 local businesses and training providers were on hand to share a diverse range of opportunities for students to explore, including employment, apprenticeships, and educational programs.

HR Manager for the Original Oyster House Joie Biancardi said, “I go to all of the job fairs in Baldwin County and this is our first year coming to Mobile County. I was truly not expecting the turnout that we have gotten. We talked for two hours straight. These students are engaged, they are asking questions, participating, they are well-versed, and just excited. As employers, we are just as excited to be here. This has been a wonderful experience. This has been the highlight of all the job fairs that I have done this year and in the last five years.”

This career fair was hosted by the Mobile County Public School System and was held in partnership with the Mobile Chamber, Southwest Alabama Workforce Development Council (SAWDC), Chickasaw City Schools, and the Mobile Area Education Foundation.

In a significant boost to healthcare education and workforce development in rural Alabama, Reid State Technical College (RSTC) proudly announces its receipt of nearly $450,000 in grant funding from the Delta Regional Authority (DRA) through the Delta Workforce Grant Program (DWP).

The grant will support RSTC's innovative Partnerships Impacting Nursing Student Success (PINSS) Project, designed to address critical socio-economic and healthcare challenges in Evergreen, Conecuh County, and surrounding areas. This initiative is a response to the pressing demand for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) in service area, which encompasses Butler, Conecuh, Covington, Escambia, Monroe, and Wilcox counties. The region is grappling with an acute shortage of healthcare professionals, compounded by an aging population and workforce.
