According to data from the US Chamber of Commerce Foundation, 80 percent of a business' future workforce comes from a 20 percent radius of the business' location. This means you can start to shape your future workforce NOW. Join the Triangle East Chamber, members of the Career and Technical Education department, and Johnston Community College to learn how your business can benefit from interns and apprentices. High school juniors and seniors as well as Community College students are available now to work with your business. Hear from local businesses that have utilized interns and apprentices. Think you don't have time to host an intern? Learn how interns have completed projects for local businesses. Have all of your questions and concerns about internships and apprenticeships answered. If you don't find the time to invest in internships today you'll have a harder time with the skills gap in the future.
Join us to connect with other women and grow your contacts. Women in the workforce face unique challenges. Guests will have the opportunity to be mentored by some of the Triangle East's top female leaders. At each table our guests will have candid conversations with mentors and other guests that will inspire them, make them laugh, and help them succeed on their career journey. Our format allows guests to meet with three different Wonder Women meaning guests will leave with at least three different pieces of wisdom.
Although work cultures and climates are constantly evolving, the art of business etiquette still has its place in the workplace. During this meeting, participants will be briefed in business etiquette, networking, netiquette, and best practices for communication. General knowledge and skills in these areas are necessary to build strong and lasting relationships with both potential and existing clientele.
