CULLMAN, Ala. — Worlds of Work, a career expo designed for middle and high school students featuring top employers, is coming to Wallace State Community College’s coliseum in Hanceville on April 6-7. The expo will be hosted by North AlabamaWorks, Wallace State Community College, Cullman Economic Development Agency, Cullman County Economic Development and the Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Worlds of Work Career Expo is a fun, hands-on opportunity for students to learn about high-demand, high-wage career opportunities available close to home, while also addressing workforce needs in the region. WOW partners are working with county and city school systems in the Cullman County area to provide this unique educational experience for 3,500 8th, 9th and 10th grade students.

Interactive displays from local companies and organizations will be on site, featuring industries such as agriculture, construction, business/finance, communications/marketing, cybersecurity/information technology, education/training, energy/utilities, healthcare, public safety, modern manufacturing and transportation/ logistics.

“We are so appreciative of our WOW partners, exhibitors and volunteers for their dedication to local students,’’ says Executive Director of North AlabamaWorks Stephanie McCulloch. “Whether it is teaching a student about an in-demand career option or connecting the employers with the younger generation, this event will make a difference in the Cullman County community.”
