Education Matters 29: Catawba Careers & Hot Job Videos!

Catawba Careers is an innovative video driven website created as a new media option to post and advertise career opportunities in the Catawba Valley. The website features Hot Job! Videos specific to local positions featuring people who are currently working for area businesses. These videos are designed to appeal to young adults in high school, college, and beyond. The intention is to bring a greater awareness of our local companies and the positions available with links to the education and training required.

The Hot Job! Videos and the Catawba Careers website are tools that teachers, guidance counselors, career coaches, and career centers can use to connect students to local careers. The site is complete with current job openings, career related news and events, resources for career exploration and preparation, and so much more!

Education Matters, Jackson Group Interactive, Catawba Valley Community College, Catawba Chamber of Commerce, Innovate Catawba, and Hickory Young Professionals work collaboratively to develop the website and videos.
