Employer Expo Helps Perry Tech Students Find Jobs

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Students at Perry Technical Institute got a up close look at potential employers Wednesday.

The school hosted more than two dozen different businesses during their first ever Employer Expo.

Organizers say Perry Tech has an 89% job placement rate for students after they graduate, and introducing them to potential employers is an important way to get them jobs after school.

"It's a great opportunity for everybody involved. It's good for them to get us, and it's good for us to get in contact with companies. I actually have an interview with one later on today," said student Alan Spear.

Officials say they're continuing to see more and more students enrolling at Perry Tech, the job placement rating being a big part of that continued growth.
