EPIC SUCCESS VIRTUAL CAREER EXPO

The EPIC Success Career Expo is an initiative to bring more awareness of careers to our rural communities and is only open to school districts within the Region 16 area.

Employers and Post-Secondary Educators are encouraged to create interactive activities to engage student participants in exploring the knowledge and skills behind the job titles. This will NOT be your average career fair!

How You Can Participate:

  • Presenter Booth (2 Hours) – As a presenter, you will have the opportunity to present your career through a discussion on the educational and skill requirements, daily responsibilities, salary range, job outlook, and any other pieces of information you deem relevant. You will present your career to several groups of students for 30 minutes at a time. You may want to include activities, samples, brochures, and any other materials that may benefit the students’ understanding. Sharing a story is a great way to help students truly understand what it feels like to do your job.
  • Employer Booth (1 Hour) – Employers will have a representative(s) available by video in their virtual job fair booth from 11 am-12 pm on the day of the event. Representatives will video chat with students visiting the booth, talking about opportunities with the employer, and answering questions. A video tutorial will be sent to all participants and a “practice run” will be scheduled at least one day before the event so that employers are familiarized with the process.
  • Scholarships – Scholarships are awarded annually to eligible students enrolling in accredited colleges or universities in the U. S. We provide mentorships to our recipients in order to achieve higher retention and graduation rates.
