Kansas City Kansas Community College Workforce Development is holding a forum to inform the public about the numerous job opportunities in the field of digital storytelling.
The seminar will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, at the KCKCC Thomas R. Burke Technical Education Center, 65th and State, in the multipurpose room.
Current estimates put the number of jobs in digital storytelling at nearly 35,000 in the Kansas City area today, and growing, according to college officials.
The forum is free with lunch included and open to the public. Those attending may connect with employers, students and instruction experts to learn more about the growing area of digital storytelling.
The forum will focus on acquainting local businesses with the variety of courses KCKCC offers in preparation for employment opportunities within the diverse field of digital storytelling. Also it will introduce students and community members to local businesses, possible career options, and internship opportunities. The goal is to build a strong working relationship within the community and the local businesses needing skilled employees and interns.
This project is supported by the regional KC Accelerator project, funded by the Jobs and Innovation Accelerator Challenge grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration, and the Small Business Administration.
