    Rogue Careers Website

    The new Rogue Careers website creates online career exploration support for job and career-seekers of all ages: students, their parents, under-employed and/or unemployed adults.

    This one-stop site will link to all the region’s career exploration and career learning/on-boarding efforts. It has career planning resources and pages devoted to the region’s target industry sectors. It is up-to-date with the most recent information for regional opportunities, including the most updated, high-wage, and in-demand career employment information.

    Regional workforce, education and training partners are also creating new small group in-person and virtual “Career Appetizer” experiences for all job and career-seekers.

    Oregon Connections

    This platform provides opportunities for students and teachers to engage in live “Industry Chats” with business employers from across the nation, facilitated in a safe online platform by a professional support team. Several local businesses such as Quantum Innovation and Valley Immediate Care have already done chats, and they’re great! Plus, sessions are recorded and archived for later viewing.
