Workforce Solutions Capital Area and Goodwill of Central Texas hosted a Career Skilled Trades Fair at the Del Valle Opportunity Center on October 10 during the school’s Open House. The event offered students a hands-on opportunity to explore careers in a variety of trades. 

According to Workforce Solutions, skilled trades and advanced manufacturing are key economic sectors in the Austin/Travis County area. Businesses were able to connect with juniors and seniors and share information about pursuing a career in skilled trades.
