Modesto Junior College invites students and the community to back-to-back, career-focused events. The first event is the Career Technical Education (CTE) Open House and Career Expo on Thursday, February 22, 4:30 - 7 p.m., followed by Meet the Professionals in Agriculture on Friday, February 23, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Both events are held in the Agriculture Center for Education (ACE) Pavilion located on West Campus, 2201 Blue Gum Avenue, Modesto. There is no admission charged and West Campus parking is free for these two events.
The CTE Open House and Career Expo is aimed at introducing students, industry and the public to the available career pathways and programs at MJC. The event includes workshops on financial aid, job interviews, internships, re-entry workers and dressing for success. Information tables and a job fair with employers ready to hire are also featured.
Meet the Professionals of Agriculture is focused on the Ag Industry and related employers of the Central Valley. Students have the opportunity to interact with the recruiting staff and find out what it takes to be successful in a career in agriculture.
CTE is education and training that directly prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers in a broad cross section of fields. These programs provide students with classroom and applied lab learning, licensing and industry certification and work-based learning opportunities outside the classroom.
