Workforce Counselors Guiding Pathways for Seniors

SXSW EDU webinar recap

Posted on 05/18/2020 by Austin Chamber

Ever struggled with supporting high school students with "best-bet" college and career next steps? Most of future job growth will be in middle skill occupations, yet students and parents are largely unaware of jobs and the education to get them.

Our partners at the Texas Workforce Commission are piloting an initiative that places workforce counselors at schools to provide direct guidance to students for in-demand jobs and related training.

In this SXSW EDU panel discussion, Kwee Lan Teo, Vice President of Talent Development & Acquisition for the Austin Chamber, discussed the role that the Chamber plays in helping to connect students to career opportunities through our Talent Ambassador program.

Through this and our many other education and talent initiatives, the Austin Chamber helps people gain the skills they need to be successful and help businesses connect to talent.
