CCCTC Students Prepare for Future Employment

LISBON, Ohio – Columbiana County Career and Technical Center juniors and seniors got an opportunity to meet with businesses, skilled trade unions, military and schools as they prepare for their futures after high school.

Nearly 60 organizations sent representatives to talk to students. Michelle Fitzsimmons, CCCTC student services coordinator, said the event she first organized six years ago gives students an opportunity to learn about companies with which they might not be familiar, which in turn expands their prospects for employment in the future.

Students got a chance to conduct mock interviews with companies and organizations and practice their interviewing skills, possibly leading to a work program job, summer employment opportunity or just a connection down the road.
