An annual event that is the capstone of PWA's work, the goal of the Expo is to educate students about the amazing diversity of career opportunities in our region and the skills they need to acquire to pursue those jobs. In 2013, the Expo attracted over 4,800 students from 70+ high schools.
Over 120 exhibitors and many of Oregon's best companies participated from nearly every sector including health care, business, communications, manufacturing, construction, energy, education and government.
Over 100 volunteers organized by the Portland & SW Washington Human Resource Associations and the Oregon Staffing Association conducted 1500 mock interviews with students to help them sharpen their interviewing skills. These human resource professionals also provided students with feedback on their resumes.
This year, we expect over 5,000 students from more than 70 high schools!
