CARTERET COUNTY, NC (WITN) - Carteret Community College is joining forces with Carteret County Public Schools to launch the first annual Career and Technology Expo Tuesday.

Students and parents can learn about career opportunities available in Carteret County and the necessary skills and education needed to secure those jobs.

"The Career and Technology Expo is a great partnership between Carteret County Public Schools (CCPS) and Carteret Community College (CCC)," said Allison Dees, Director of Career and Technical Education at Carteret County Public Schools. "We want students as young as elementary school to begin thinking about what careers interest them. The Expo will showcase high school courses, community college courses and programs, and offer interactions with industry leaders in our area to make that career connection."

More than 50 individual career paths will be represented at the expo in fields ranging from Fire Academy & EMS to aquaculture, automotive, welding, boat manufacturing and marine trades to the culinary arts, health sciences and business administration.

The expo will be set up on the CCC campus across from the McGee building from 5-7pm.
