Welcome to worlds of work!

 

The purpose of the Expo is to create awareness about exciting career options among students and educators while addressing workforce needs in the region. Existing employers in the region continue to have unfilled job openings due to a shortage of skilled workers. In addition, employers face additional shortages over the next few years due to retirements of up to 75% of their workforce.

This Expo is a project of West Alabama Works, Region 3 Workforce Development Council and the Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama. The Expo will be a fun, educational, hands-on opportunity for students to become familiar with a broad overview of high demand, high wage career opportunities available in the area.

Attendance to the Expo will be available to students for our nine-county workforce development region which includes Bibb, Fayette, Greene, Hale, Lamar, Marengo, Pickens, Sumter, and Tuscaloosa counties. The “Worlds of Work” will include “worlds” or industry sectors:
