Technology Summit & Career Exploration

Information for Employers

In 2009 you provided a valuable opportunity for juniors and seniors from local high schools to learn more about careers in the field of technology. With your help, VWCC was able to provide information, activities and encouragement to young people who are considering careers in technology where there is high demand.

The goal of the 2010 Technology Summit and Career Exploration is to develop a career pipeline to meet both the current and future needs of regional business and industry.

Date: Friday, October 15, 2010
Event time: 9:45 AM - 1:00 PM

Businesses are welcome to arrive on campus beginning at 8:00 AM for breakfast and to set up display tables.

As part of our continuous improvement process, many of your suggestions and recommendations have been integrated into this year's event. VWCC is expanding the 2010 Summit to include three distinct components:

  • Exhibits where you can showcase your company for high school and college students with an opportunity to interact more with college students;
  • A career exploration specifically for current Virginia Western students and alumni; and
  • A guided tour of the Advanced Technology Center for all participating companies to see first-hand the educational resources available at VWCC and to meet many of our faculty.

For your convenience, we have linked the event's agenda as well as the business partner form that participating employers will need to complete prior to the event. To assist us with your accommodations, we ask that you please complete your form and return it to us via fax at 540-857-7086 or via email to
