Help inspire your future workforce! Today's high school juniors will be your workforce in the next 2-5 years and now is the time to prepare them for the job market.

We invite you to be a part of the Cabarrus County Career Connections Day in one or more of these exciting ways:

  • Introduce students to possible career fields by sharing hands-on experiences about career opportunities at your company's booth
  • Recruit for open positions for job openings
  • Prepare students for the future job market by sponsoring one of the career cafe symposiums
  • Help students learn about alternative paths for achieving necessary career education through community schools, trade schools, etc. 
  • Share information on internships and apprenticeship programs

Career Booths. Students will visit company booths to interact with employers. We encourage companies to bring hands-on experiences for students that introduce them to potential careers. With our facilities at the Cabarrus Arena, we are able to accommodate just about anything a company would like to do. 

Career Symposiums. Students will learn from some of the most amazing business leaders in the area. Throughout the event, we will have three career symposiums which will host 15 minute sessions to prepare students for the workforce. Each career symposium will have a theme:

  • Job 101 - Students will gather tips about how to score that job interview, what to wear to the office and job searching protocols
  • Business Outside of the Box - Students will hear from successful individuals who work in professions outside the norm.
  • Leadership on the Job - What does leadership on the job mean as you begin your career? Students will listen to business professionals provide guidance on how to establish yourself as a leader on the job no matter your position.

With your participation and support, we can ensure our future workforce is ready to meet your hiring needs!


We were looking forward to seeing the amazing impact of another successful Cabarrus County Career Connections Day where companies found valuable employees and students learned about careers available here in Cabarrus County and how to prepare for them.

Unfortunately, with the announcement of two presumptive positive cases of the COVID-19 coronavirus in Mecklenburg County today and the fast spreading nature of the virus, the decision has been made to cancel the Cabarrus County Career Connections Day that was scheduled for April 7, 2020. No decision has been made as to whether the event will be postponed to a later date.

With this decision, all payments received will be refunded in the next 2-3 business days. For those paying online, the refund will be charged back to the paying credit card. For those who paid by check, all refund checks will be mailed to the address provided on your registration form.
