The Columbia County Chamber Foundation and the Columbia County School System are partnering to host the Columbia County Career and College Expo on March 8, 2022 at the Columbia County Exhibition Center.

The purpose of the event is to expose parents and students to career opportunities for the future. The initiative will align the educational, technical, and trade sectors with the businesses showing parents and students the pathways to obtain a future quality career. Each company will list the main careers needed for the future and include the education, skills, or certificates need to be employed by their company. The company will also list the benefits and salary ranges expected to be paid for each type of position. The goal is to show a true path from high school to a future career, whether that includes a four year university, a technical college or trade school, or directly going into the workforce, it’s a road to a future career.
