Bloomington, IN– TASUS recently took part in the first annual Career and Technical Education (CTE3) Summit hosted by the Indiana Region 8 Works Council and Hoosier Hills Career Center. TASUS had a booth set up for students to visit, ask questions, and learn more about career opportunities with the company and in the manufacturing industry. Additionally, TASUS representatives spoke to a crowd of over 300 students on soft skills important to employers. This served as an opportunity for TASUS to connect with the next generation of employees, while also helping to improve their skills and knowledge as they begin to transition from high school.
TASUS was represented by Director of Technical Development Robbie Elliott, Director of Marketing Jay Brown, Marketing Assistant Zoul Ballman, and Engineering Intern Michael Frederick. The diverse group of employees allowed our team to connect with students interested in all different types of careers. It was our goal to show students the benefits of working in manufacturing, while also improving general skills that can be used in any career.
The CTE3 Summit hosted a wide range of companies and post-secondary education officials. The goal was to show students the various career paths they can follow, and that there is no universal path for everyone. Students visited the various company booths, took part in mock interviews, and listened to presentations on various career related topics.
