Career Central to host Career Fair to promote post-secondary education

July 23, 2012

A Georgetown University study says, 63% of jobs by 2018 will require some post-secondary education.

As Pasco County high school students work toward their graduation, diverse career and post-secondary education choices become real life possibilities. Career Central is hosting a Career Fair in both Pasco and Hernando Counties and is inviting local educational agencies to participate in this free event. The Pasco County Career Fair scheduled for August 3rd from 10:00am to 3:00pm is FREE and open to the public at their New Port Richey location (4440 Grand Blvd.). It is the perfect opportunity for anyone who is interested in post-secondary education to meet with representatives from a number of educational facilities and see what programs each of them have to offer. The Hernando County Career Fair scheduled for August 7th from 10:00am to 3:00pm is FREE and open to the public at their Spring Hill location (7361 Forest Oaks Blvd.). Why is this so this important? 

  • The difference between bachelors degree and high school diploma holders’ lifetime earnings is $1.5 million.
  • In real terms, those with less education have seen incomes drop over their lifetimes
  • People with higher levels of education are more likely to participate in the workforce
  • The unemployment rate for employees with more education is considerably lower than for those with less education.
Education is the key to a healthy economy, and here in Pasco County we are focused on building our workforce for the future. Pasco County is leading the way with the highest graduation rate in Tampa Bay at 85.5%, 5.4% higher than the Florida state average.
 
Now is the time to encourage those graduating students to go further and pursue post-secondary education, and this Career Fair hosted by Career Central is the perfect opportunity for anyone who is interested in furthering their education to get the information they need.
