Local college students spent the day with us at the Community Education Center in St. Marys to learn how their "digital footprint" (online posts including #selfies) and "financial footprint" could affect their chances of getting a job some day.
Representatives from Common Sense Media, Kuleck Financial Planning, the DISCOVER Partnership and PHEAA shared their expertise on topics ranging from social media and digital responsibility to financial planning and avoiding student loan debt.
A panel of local employers from Allegheny Coatings, Clarion Sintered Metals, Inc., Dickinson Center, Inc., First Commonwealth Bank, Keystone Powdered Metal Company, and Northern Tier Community Action Corporation, contributed by giving students tips and advice on applying for job openings and acing interviews.
Many thanks go out to our presenters, participants, and the employer panel as well as local employers and the Stackpole-Hall Foundation who sent their summer interns to attend.
We hope to see you all again next year!
