The purpose of the Charlotte Chamber Career Connection is to cultivate diverse, entry-level talent and promote Charlotte as a preferred place to work and live. The Career Connection seeks to expose high school and college students to high-growth careers that lead to sustainable employment and economic opportunity. The initiative helps to bring industry speakers into the classroom, coordinates employer site visits, and connects students with mentors to reinforce and accelerate their career success.

Currently, the Career Connection focus areas are accounting and information technology:

Diversity in Accounting – expanding and diversifying the talent pipeline in the accounting, audit and tax field.

Future I.T. Talent – expanding tomorrow’s workforce in coding, software development, cybersecurity and other information technology fields. Launches Fall 2018...

To sponsor and/or volunteer for this initiative, contact CareerConnection@charlottechamber.com. We are recruiting speakers from the accounting and I.T. fields, and mentors from the accounting field, for the 2018-19 school year.
