The Duluth Entertainment Convention Center was a swirling sea of activity on October 29, when the Northland Foundation presented Pathway to Careers. More than 1,000 high school students from throughout northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin bussed to the DECC to engage in a day of interactive career exploration.
When not in breakout sessions featuring panelists working within 8 unique industry clusters, students visited the exhibit hall with over 60 business and higher education booths. The exhibits were hands-on; students piled on firefighting gear, tried their hand with welding and backhoe simulators, sat behind an anchor’s desk reading news from the teleprompter, learned about mining minerals, and much more.
It was a fast-paced, high-energy opportunity to give youth in the region an up-close look at jobs available here, and make the connection to the training they will need to fill those jobs.
