Clinton County Career Exploration Fair Registration Open

The Clinton County Workforce Collaborative, in partnership with Junior Achievement of OKI Partners, is excited to announce the first...

Career Exploration Fair
Wednesday, September 28, 2022
8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Laurel Oaks Career Campus, 300 Oak Drive, Wilmington

The Fair is designed to get high school students excited about their futures by exploring career opportunities in high growth industries right here in Clinton County. The Fair will give local businesses an opportunity to build a pipeline to the young people and job seekers in our community…their future employees!

The Fair is only open to employers in Clinton County. That means that as exhibitors, Clinton County businesses will have exclusive access to:

Over 700 young people who are actively planning their futures! All four school districts in the County will be bringing high school students to the Fair. Schools will have scheduled arrival and departure times between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Job seekers of all ages! The Fair will be open to community members from 3 to 6 p.m.

This is not a traditional job fair! This is a hands-on, interactive, exploratory high-energy event. Check out this video to see what a Career Exploration Fair looks like!

Clinton County businesses are encouraged to use this opportunity to engage our community’s youth. Businesses shouldn't think about telling students and job seekers why a career in their industry is exciting…businesses should show them! Members of the Workforce Collaborative are happy to brainstorm with businesses about their exhibit at the Fair…the sky is the limit!

Registration is required by August 31. Indoor and outdoor spaces are available. Workforce Collaborative volunteers will work with businesses to determine the ideal size and location for each display. Registration fees are tiered based on the number of FTE employees in Clinton County:

  • Small Companies (1-99 employees) - $50
  • Medium Companies (100-499 employees) - $150
  • Large Companies (500+ employees) - $250
