Career Exploration Day is April 6 at Pittston Area High School


YATESVILLE — The Greater Pittston Chamber of Commerce, along with PA CareerLink® Luzerne County, Luzerne/Schuylkill Workforce Investment Board and the Pittston Area School District, will host its Second Annual Career Exploration Day 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 6 at the Pittston Area High School, 5 Stout St.

School districts involved include Pittston Area, Coughlin, Hanover Area, Wyoming Area and Wyoming Valley West.

This is not a traditional “job fair” but rather an event for companies to share with students information about careers within their industry and organization. It is an opportunity to educate students about the skills, training, and education necessary to succeed in the industries located in NEPA.

The goal is to encourage students to remain in the area after graduation.

The Chamber will also host a Participants Appreciation Mixer sponsored by Prime Trucking at World of Brew 170 Laurel Plaza, Pittston Township, beginning at 3 p.m.
