WOW 2.0 Educators. Students. Parents. Industry.

The Event.

WOW 2.0 is for high school seniors interested in interviewing for full- and part-time jobs. If you are a high school senior who wishes to enter the workforce full-time following graduation, or you would like to work part-time while attending college, you should attend. If you attend this event, you will interview with at least one company. These are not mock interviews, so be prepared. The interviews will take place on Wednesday, April 10, 2024.

Once the registration has closed, the West AlabamaWorks! team along with a human resources panel will review your Career Connect profile to match you to a company based on your interests and experience.

The Evolution of the Event…

Since its launch in 2018, WOW 2.0 has connected high school students to West Alabama industry partners, helping to pave a pathway to success for our students. In the past, WOW 2.0 was divided into two components – WOW 2.0 and WOW 2.0: College and Career Day. Both events take place on the campus of Shelton State Community College.

Anticipated for Spring 2024: WOW 2.0: College and Career Day

Seniors from the 9 counties in Region 3 will have the opportunity to meet with post-secondary schools and industries. Seniors who have not decided on a college plan are also able to attend, but they must register using the junior link. This event is an excellent opportunity for students to explore the high growth, high demand jobs available in West Alabama. Students will be able to speak with post-secondary schools: Shelton State Community College, The University of Alabama, Stillman College, and Wallace Community College-Selma, as well as meet with industry professionals in a job fair setting.

WOW 2.0 (virtual for 2021)

High school seniors participated in scheduled interviews with business and industry. Students registered individually to attend; each student was guaranteed one interview. The West Alabama Works team reviewed applications and matched students with companies that fit the students background and interests. 14 companies participated in WOW 2.0 and offered 150 students either a follow-up to progress in the interviewing process or  seniors were offered the position.
