Career Development Events in Arizona
November is Career Development Month! Finding a job or figuring out a career path may feel like an intimidating task, but it doesn’t have to be. Arizona has many resources to support you.
It is vital for all Arizonans to pursue degrees or certifications, as this effort strengthens individuals, communities, and even our economy. When our state has a skilled workforce, businesses move their corporations to our state, and in turn, our state’s economy is positively impacted. Currently, less than half of Arizona high schoolers are pursuing education after high school.. In order for Arizona to remain competitive and keep our economy stable, we must keep working towards the Achieve60AZ goal, meaning we need 500,000 more adults to earn a postsecondary degree or certificate by the year 2030.
