Experience Career Discovery

We invite you to be a part of Career Discovery at Southern Union!

Central AlabamaWorks, Region 5 (Autauga, Bullock, Chambers, Coosa, Dallas, Elmore, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Montgomery, Perry, Russell, and Tallapoosa counties) has a diverse and unique set of industries, businesses, non-profits and career opportunities. On October 3-4, 2019, Central AlabamaWorks will present its annual career exploration event, Career Discovery, at the Southern Union State Community College Opelika Campus.

Each career cluster will offer interactive, hands-on activities that allow students to examine particular jobs, courses of study, and career fields. During previous Career Discovery Expos, students have explored Energy and Utilities by riding a bike to power lights, music, and a bubble machine. They have experimented with Architecture and Construction by drafting plans for a bridge or building a brick wall. They have personally experienced Communication and Technology by reading the news or weather in front of a camera. Make plans to join us in September to find out what interactive activities will be available at the Career Expo.

Each student will receive a Career Discovery Student Guide, containing information on what it takes for career success and an introduction to our eleven career clusters. Career Discovery will host over 4,000 students, teachers, counsellors, parent chaperones, volunteers, sponsors, partners and exhibitors.
