Northland will Welcome Area High School Students for Annual Career Expos

Participants will explore career programs to prep them for jobs in high-demand fields.

March 23, 2022 – Northland Community & Technical College is set to host the 2022 Career Expo on both campuses. Doors will open at 9:30 am on March 30, 2022, at Northland’s Thief River Falls campus. A similar event will take place on the East Grand Forks campus on April 20, 2022. The event will give high school students in grades 9-12 an exclusive opportunity to meet with faculty in a wide variety of programs as well as student services staff.

Northland’s Annual Career Expo offers area high school students the unique opportunity to explore careers that are in demand regionally to help make decisions about their future and understand the value of education. The event focuses on Northland’s programs and provides an in-depth and engaging experience connecting participants directly with faculty.

“We are excited to get high school students back on campus to learn more about our awesome programs at Northland!” expressed Maura Efteland, Northland Recruiter and Advisor. “Each program will have hands on activities that will allow students to gain a real understanding of the field.”

Students will learn first-hand from program faculty as they talk about the classroom experience, how online classes work, highlight career opportunities, and hold a question and answer session. Many Northland programs will be on-hand, including; Paramedic, Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Physical Therapist Assistant, Respiratory Therapy, Business, Digital Marketing, Marketing & Management, Auto Body Collision Technology, Automotive Service Technology, Agriculture, Geospatial Intelligence Analysis, Early Childhood Education, and Architectural Technology & Design.

“College is a huge investment, so it’s important for students and their families to begin exploring options early and consider many avenues for education,” stated Northland Recruiter and Advisor Nic Thompson. “This is the perfect opportunity for high school students who are contemplating their future to get an in depth look at all of the program options we have here at Northland.”

Participants will be able to attend several sessions of their choosing and get a comprehensive overview of Northland’s diverse program options. In addition, they will be introduced to their student support team and have a chance to ask any questions about the admission process, class registration, tuition, and financial aid.
