The Workplace Learning Connection brings together students from Cedar, Benton, Iowa, Jones, Linn, Johnson and Washington counties in east central Iowa looking for career information and connects them to area business professionals who are interested in preparing our region's future employees.
Students become more prepared for the local job market, and businesses have the opportunity to mold potential employees, creating a hands-on way for students to explore careers while still in high school.
But, that’s not all. Local job experience is key to keeping our best and brightest here, in Iowa. And the on-the-job learning students receive simply cannot be recreated in a classroom.
