Career Navigator News is a biweekly newsletter from your Career Navigator, Heather Schutte.
January is Healthcare Month
Health care is projected to be the leading source of job growth in Minnesota over the next decade.  With a growth rate that equals 16.5%, jobs in Health Care & Social Assistance is growing three times faster than all other industries!
Students in Southeast Minnesota have the unique opportunity to explore careers in health care throughout the month of January.  In a partnership with HealthForce Minnesota, your students can learn about careers in healthcare from local professionals and companies.
Log-in to FutureForward™ today to get students registered.  Events start on January 11th and run through the end of the month.  Be sure to check out these resources!
  • Healthcare Month Toolkit
  • Live Virtual Q & A sessions with healthcare professionals
  • Pre-recorded site tours and interviews
  • Classroom activities aligned to state and industry standards
Le Roy - Ostrander Connections!
The best way to engage your students is to connect them with local employers!  Earlier this fall, Le Roy-Ostrander provided a list of companies and professionals who support the school for me to connect with and help get on the FutureForward™ portal.  The chart above is only a fraction of the businesses I will connect with in Cardinal country! 
Help me connect with local professionals and businesses in your school district through the referral form below or by sending me a list that includes current contact information. 
A warm introduction is greatly appreciated, so be sure to let them know who I am and that I will be contacting them soon!

In the next two weeks... 

  • Kick-off of Healthcare Month (January 11)
  • SMEC Principals Meeting (January 14)
  • Add professionals and companies to FutureForward
  • SMEC Alumni Network development
  • SMEC Career Wheel (reference Le Roy-Ostrander's above)
