Career Explorations 2019 draws 2,000 visitors

About 2,000 high school students and visitors from the Parkland region attended Career
Explorations 2019 at the Gallagher Centre in Yorkton on Thursday. The 10th annual
education and career fair attracted close to 80 exhibitors from across Saskatchewan,
Western Canada, and North Dakota.

Career Explorations is the largest education and job fair in East Central Saskatchewan. It is organized by Parkland College, in association with Good Spirit School Division and
Christ the Teacher Catholic Schools.

The goal of the career fair is to provide students with many of the options available to them once they finish high school. Career Explorations puts all these options under one roof.

Students and visitors were able to access information from dozens of educational
institutions and companies from numerous sectors of the economy, including agriculture, health, mining, technology, public safety, and government.

Career Explorations was created from a Learning Alliance signed in 2008 between Good Spirit School Division and Parkland College. Christ the Teacher Catholic Schools has expanded its role since joining the organizing committee in 2012.
