Mecosta-Osceola Career Center Career Fair
BIG RAPIDS, MI – As part of Career and Technical Education month in February, over 500 students from across Mecosta and Osceola counties had the opportunity to talk with nearly 50 employers about the skills they’re learning at the Mecosta-Osceola Career Center (MOCC). They also got a better idea of what their lives will be like when they enter the workforce.
“Today is helping these kids open their eyes and know what kinds of jobs are out there for them after high school,” said Mike Miller, MOCC director of career and technical education. “It’s one of my favorite days of the year.”
The annual Career Expo serves as an opportunity for all MOCC students to demonstrate their career-readiness skills, as well as learn what their next steps should be to obtain employment within their chosen field. MOCC programs include health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing, cosmetology, culinary arts, hospitality management, public safety, graphic design and more.
Students at the MOCC are from high schools in the Big Rapids Public Schools, Crossroads Charter Academy, Morley Stanwood Community Schools, Reed City Area Public Schools, Evart Public Schools and Chippewa Hills School districts.
