Sinclair Community College is inviting students, recent graduates, job seekers, and individuals looking to explore new opportunities to “Career Deciding Day” on Thursday, May 26, 2022, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. inside Building 12 at Sinclair’s downtown Dayton campus. The free event is open to the public.
Sinclair faculty, advisors, and staff will be on hand to help adults of all ages explore in-demand, rewarding careers, decide on a program of study, and learn how to get on a solid path toward achieving their goals. Attendees will also learn about support services, including the Sinclair food pantry and mental health resources. Representatives from several social services agencies and community organizations will help attendees figure out how to pay for college, get assistance with basic needs, and most importantly, get help figuring out what they are good at, what kind of work that they will enjoy, and how those two things together will help them make a good living.
“Career Deciding Day” is being held in partnership with Ohio To Work, an initiative in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic to connect employers with the skilled workers they need to help Ohio’s job seekers find meaningful employment. Sinclair is the only community college in Ohio selected to lead a regional Ohio To Work consortium, which partners with businesses and social service agencies to provide training and support to thousands of job seekers.
“Sinclair College is proud to be an Ohio To Work partner as we work together to provide opportunities for job seekers while filling the critical workforce needs of employers. The Dayton region is exploding with good-paying jobs that are going unfilled because job seekers either don’t know about them or don’t have the right skill set. Many jobs only require a certificate that can be earned in a few months to a year and as individuals begin working, they can progress to more education and begin to earn more,” said Dr. Kathleen Cleary, Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives, Sinclair Community College. “Career Deciding Day is a tremendous opportunity for attendees to explore a wide variety of career fields and make a positive change in their lives.”
