Natural Resources: Giants Ridge
Thursday, September 20, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CDT)
We encourage you to participate in an important “Workforce Assessment” initiative to address the state’s growing skills gap. The Workforce Assessment will engage employers in developing precise projections for how many workers and professionals, with what kinds of skills, will be needed in our area, for what kinds of jobs. This critical information will help ensure that colleges and universities in Minnesota offer the right programs in the right places to prepare the skilled workers and professionals that Minnesota needs in the coming decade in Natural Resources which will include: mining, forestery/logging, land and water resources.
