The event which provided an opportunity for the more than 250 educators and administration from local public schools and the Alamo Colleges who attended to learn about current labor market information that will help them advise students on making career choices.

"A skilled workforce is critical for Texas to compete in a global economy," said Zaragoza. "To meet employer demand for skilled workers in the next decade, Texas must provide key labor market information to educators to help students choose their career paths wisely and this event was a key component in achieving that goal," he added.

“We should continue, and strengthen the conversation with our teachers, our counselors, our parents, and our students so that they can have all the information they need to make informed education and career choices,” said e Andrade. “Our students need to know about the great jobs that our region’s employers offer and what it takes to get those jobs.”

The education community and regional employers attended the event to help further prepare students for careers that work. Industry Day was designed to provide the latest supply and demand information from workforce experts and industry leaders including Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas, University Health System, Holt Cat, Rackspace, H-E-B and TASC Inc.

“Community colleges across the state are partnering with businesses to train and upgrade the skills of our workforce – and they are also partnering with our school districts as they provide skill and technical training for our students, tomorrow’s workforce,” Andrade said.
