Motorists, pedestrians and cyclists are encouraged to use alternate routes when possible.

 

When the project is complete, residents can expect improved utility service, improved roadway drainage, and a smoother, safer commute.

Job Fair

Jordan School District CTE is holding a “Career Choices” event on May 4, 2017.  This event will be held at the JATC South Campus, located at 12723 S. Park Avenue in Riverton from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The purpose of this event is to bring together business partners who have a need for employees now and in the future, and students who have an interest in these specific career areas.  Parents are invited to accompany students to this event so that they too recognize career opportunities that are available.  This event will focus on career options that do not require a 4-year college degree such as apprenticeship opportunities, trades and construction options. 

We invite you to participate in this event.  It will be held outside in the parking lot and area surrounding the building.  There will be space for you to bring equipment or displays that will demonstrate what kinds of things are done in the industry.  Please include “next steps” information so students will know what to do now to prepare for the industry, and how to get into the industry upon graduation.  If your presentation does not require a demonstration area or an area for equipment, there will be a specific area for a simple table and smaller display where you can just provide information.

This event can also be an opportunity for you to market any job openings you may have available for both graduating seniors and their parents.  Let us know if you have an interest in conducting interviews during the event, and we will arrange a location to facilitate that process.

To participate in this event, please submit the information sheet by April 3, 2017.  The link to this form is provided below.  Booth space is on a first come first serve basis. For more information or questions, I can be contacted by email or by phone at 801-256-5956.

Career Choices – Information Sheet

We are excited for this event and look forward to having you participate with us.
