People are the most important resource we have in the Southside region.  As our job market shifts due to the pandemic, many workers are considering a career shift and many local youth are wondering where they should focus their studies and energy to ensure a vibrant future in our dynamic job market. We hope you will come to the summit to learn more about which career paths are in demand in our region, and connect with employers directly at the virtual career fair. Stay tuned to our Facebook page to watch the Summit live.
