KEC's Virtual Career Conference

KEC hosted our Virtual Career Conference on Friday, March 12th. The event was open to all local middle school students. Approximately, 800 students from around DeKalb & Ogle Counties attended the conference, gaining valuable insights from dozens of presenters regarding the road they took to get to their current job and what it takes to be successful in their career field. While the virtual format of the conference was quite different from years past, it was exciting to see the creativity come through the screens in each session! We want to thank our KEC instructors & KEC students for giving hundreds of local middle schoolers the opportunity to explore different career paths & learn the ropes of their dream job!
