“The Business and Education Partnership of Waterloo Region invites Grade 7 to 12 students and their parents/caregivers to participate in the interactive Explore Your Future speaker series starting Wednesday, December 7. This free, virtual series gives students a chance to learn about potential career options and help them plan their future career pathways.”

“Working in the food industry is a great career option for high school students to consider. There is a very high demand for people in this industry, which offers many different options, ranging from the food service and restaurant industry to food science, culinary arts, food processing, food manufacturing, agriculture and more. This event is a great opportunity to hear directly from local people working in the food industry about what they do and how they got there to see if this might be the right career path for you.”
