Join us at the Career Showcase, a dynamic event showcasing the diverse and exciting career opportunities available to high school graduates in Flagler and Volusia counties in the Advanced Manufacturing, Aerospace/Aviation and Cybersecurity/IT industries. Designed to inspire and inform the next generation of the workforce, this event brings together local businesses, educational institutions, and eager students in a collaborative environment.
Interactive Exhibitor Booths: Go beyond traditional informational booths by creating a fun and interactive experience for attendees. Instead of just pamphlets and brochures, exhibitors are expected to bring engaging activities that allow students to get hands-on experience in various career fields.
Career Simulators: Experience the thrill of different careers through cutting-edge simulators. Exhibitors are encouraged to showcase their industry-specific simulators that provide an immersive and realistic glimpse into a particular profession. Whether it’s a flight simulator, a medical training tool, or a virtual reality setup, students can get a taste of what it’s like to work in these exciting fields.
Exploring Career Paths: One of the primary objectives of the Career Showcase is to educate students about the steps they can take to pursue a specific career. Each exhibitor will have knowledgeable representatives who can provide valuable information on the educational requirements, certifications, degrees, or apprenticeship programs necessary to enter their respective industries. Students can learn about potential career trajectories and understand the various pathways available to them.
Networking Opportunities: The event is open to the public, which means that job seekers and those interested in immediate employment are welcome to attend. In addition to engaging with local businesses and educational partners, participants can network with professionals, industry experts, and potential mentors. High schoolers who may graduate early and seek immediate employment will find this event particularly beneficial as they can explore job opportunities and make connections with local employers.
The Career Showcase will ignite students’ passion for Advanced Manufacturing, Aerospace/Aviation and Cybersecurity/IT industries, broaden their career horizons, and help them make informed choices about their futures. This event is a unique opportunity for local businesses and education partners to engage with talented individuals, inspire the next generation, and foster a strong connection between education and industry.
Note: While this event is primarily an informational showcase and not a hiring event, businesses should be prepared to engage with potential job seekers and provide information about employment opportunities within their organizations. This is your opportunity to attract the best and brightest students to join your organization.

When you register you will be asked if you have a video that you can send to us to be included in our interactive material, the below video is a great example. The video is meant to be a short synopsis (approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute) that the students can refer to & will be available to them even after the career showcase so they can share with their parents.
Some examples that you can include in your video are:
- A little bit about what your company does.
- The opportunities available to students after they graduate with your company (ex: apprenticeship opportunities where you can earn while learning, college degree assistance, career pathways, etc.)
- Where you are located in Flagler, Volusia or Brevard Counties (we’ve found that students don’t realize what amazing opportunities are here in our region & think they need to move elsewhere).
- Company benefits.
- Highlight a current employee that started working for you straight out of high school.
- What a career pathway could look like for the student.
- Excite the student with what your product or service does or who your clients are. Like in this video it states they could collaborate with NASA!
