Career Expo

2017 Career Expo Another Successful Event!

Since 2006, RTEC has hosted a one-day Career Expo event to introduce middle school and high school age students to the varied career opportunities that exist in our region.

Early events focused on careers in manufacturing, but more recent Career Expos have expanded to include health care and additional technical fields. It has truly evolved into a community/regional event. A number of postsecondary education providers and manufacturers have become regulars. So have numerous community organizations, service and training providers, lenders and law enforcement agencies in addition to the South Dakota National Guard. The best part is that as the number and variety of booth participants has grown, so has the number of students and school districts attending.

Many schools from the region now bus entire classes of students. In previous years as many as 900 students have attended from at least 11 different school districts to take part in hands-on activities and demonstrations and to take advantage of the career exploration possibilities. Whether students had an opportunity to spend an hour or an entire afternoon visiting booths, they all came away with valuable information that can help them chart their future careers.

A special thank you to the many businesses, universities, tech schools and others who set up booths for the students and also to the school districts who transported students. Please feel free to contact RTEC at (605) 668-5700 with any questions. Watch for details on the 2018 event!
