Stopping the Brain Drain

Posted: Updated:

  Twelve-hundred high school sophomores from 21 schools across the northern valley took part in a  career expo at the Alerus Center today.

 

  It's hoped they'll consider a career right here in the Valley, rather than the other side of the Country.

  Experts say that never before have the opportunities to stop the brain drain been so good in our region.

  There are a growing number of jobs in the health industry as our population ages, and numerous jobs are being spun-off in the valley related to the oil boom.

Keith Lund, G.F. Economic Dev.: "The primary objective of the event is to provide career awareness for youth in secondary education. We want to profile career opportunities that are right here in the northern valley, so kids that are making their career decision can stay right here."
