GREENVILLE – Nearly 80 high school seniors from four Darke County schools and 25 area employers participated in the Senior Interview and Networking Event on April 5. The fourth annual event is sponsored by Darke County Economic Development (DCED) and open to all county high school seniors. This year, the event was held at Edison State Community College – Greenville Campus.

Students interacted with employer representatives in the Networking Area to learn more about local career, education and development opportunities. Attending students also participated in three 15-minute interviews with area employers and received feedback on their interview. When registering for the event, students indicated their employment and career interests. Students were then matched to employers who offered opportunities in their career interests or were matched based on the type of employment they were seeking.

During the event, students were able to submit their applications to any of the participating businesses. Participating employers represented career areas including Business, Education, Engineering/Science & Technology, Information Technology, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Public Safety, and Retail. “With the new location this year, we were able to expand the variety and number of employers involved and add new career areas to the event,” stated Tamala Marley, Workforce Specialist with DCED. Students also learned more about the Hometown Opportunity website and app, where they can apply to local careers and locate area openings. “Our local graduates are in demand by our area employers. Many of those employers offer tuition reimbursement, paid training, co-op programs, and paid internships,” said Marley. “It’s no longer necessary to choose between education and employment after graduation. Many of our local graduates can begin earning while they learn, rather than incurring school debt. Events like this allow students to see the wide variety of local options and career opportunities available.”.....
