Get ready for annual Career Connections conference 


Annually, the Department partners with the Ohio Association of Career-Technical Educators to host a Career Connections conference. This year’s conference is planned for July 27 at the Hilton Columbus – Easton. Save the date and consider applying to present and host a conference session.

The Career Connections conference is an opportunity for educators to network and share ideas about Career Connections work happening throughout the state. During this event, presentations focus on career advising with OhioMeansJobs or other systems, business advisory councils, student success plans and developing career pathways. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from education experts in the field and will leave with innovative ideas and resources for kicking off the school year. Submit a proposal to present here
The Career Connections conference takes place during the 2022 Ohio Career-Technical Education Innovation and Impact Conference. Register here to attend the full conference July 25-27.

Career Connections offer practical ways for teachers, school counselors, families and community members to show students, as early as kindergarten, the types of careers possible for them. Career Connections are designed to support the whole child through intentional career advising practices.
