What is CareerSpark You’re Hired
You’re Hired is a new program offered by the Greater Peoria Economic Development Council and Junior Achievement of Central Illinois. The aim is simple: educate our region’s high schoolers about the career opportunities readily available to them in central Illinois. Students will be exposed to participating companies and their existing available jobs.
This is the first annual high school hiring event, brought to you via a virtual, on-demand digital platform. Company exhibitors will use the platform to showcase their organization in a digital booth (grouped with other company booths within the same industry, such as manufacturing, healthcare, technology, business and finance, and more). Interactions between students and employers will be facilitated by guidance counselors, providing students access to real world interview and employment experiences.
