Get the job you want! Join us to explore your future career with industry leaders at College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Program Exploration Events. Learn about the programs available at CWI, get a feel of the program lab space and technology, and get tips on preparing for a successful start.
The upcoming Program Exploration Events will highlight Powersports and Small Engine Repair, Automotive Technology, Heavy Duty Truck Technician, Heavy Equipment Technician, and Collision Repair Technology programs at the College. Events are scheduled in October and November at the Nampa Campus Micron Education Center (NMEC) to learn more about these programs.
CWI Assistant Dean of Industry, Engineering, and Trades, Alex Beal, helps run the Programs Exploration events. He is excited to have industry leaders in each of these programs meet with students and share tips on how to enter the workforce and have a successful career.
“Students are able to listen and chat with industry leaders who explain what is going on in their career right now, the nature of the job, the type of earnings they can expect to make, and how they would move upward in the career,” Beal said. “I think when you bring in an employer who shares what they’re looking for when they’re hiring, it means a lot to students. It’s almost like an opportunity to have an impersonal interview with a potential employer.”
