Workforce Solutions hosts 19th Annual South Plains Career Fair
LUBBOCK, Texas -
The South Plains Career Fair hosted the future workforce Tuesday.
Workforce Solutions hosted its 19th Annual South Plains Career Fair, giving more than 3,000 high school juniors and seniors a look into possible career options after graduation.
Students from 88 schools around the area attended the career fair.
"The small communities are even more important than Lubbock because those kids have to go a long way to even get a part time job. So, it's important that they know what's not only available in their town, but what's available elsewhere," Martin Agurrie, Workforce Solutions CEO, said.
It's the largest career-education event of its kind in West Texas with more than 100 businesses and colleges helping students navigate their next steps.
