Technical Career Night  for Kids, Teens, and Job Seekers Feb. 7

Farmington Hills, MI- Are you looking for an alternative to college debt and a challenging job hunt?  People with technical backgrounds are in high demand and often find jobs faster than their college grad counterparts.  A sizable percentage of licensed skilled workers such as electricians, dental hygienists, computer programmers, beauticians, and x-ray technicians earn more than the average college graduate.

The Farmington Hills/Farmington Commission on Children, Youth & Families invites students, parents, veterans, and career-changers to explore alternatives to a four-year degree at Technical Career Night on Wednesday, February 7 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Costick Center, located at 28600 Eleven Mile Road between Middlebelt and Inkster.

The event will feature electricians, plumbers, realtors, and professionals from the HVAC, automotive, and environmental professions who will share their career success stories.  Representatives from Farmington Public Schools, Oakland Schools Technical Campuses, and Oakland Community College will offer details on how technical training can provide an alternative path to further education and job satisfaction.  For high school sophomores and juniors, help will be available with planning classes to prepare for a technical career.


Coffee and snacks will be provided.  There is no residency requirement for participants and registration is not necessary.  For more information, contact Ed Cherkinsky at 248-661-5114 or
