Attention secondary school educators, guidance counselors, higher education faculty and administrators, workforce development professionals, and incubator directors -- as well as owners of small businesses.

Burlington County College in collaboration with the Burlington County Office of Economic Development and Regional Planning and Burlington County Library System, invites you to attend a seminar on February 11, 2013 to address the workforce needs of the County’s fastest growing businesses. Sponsored in part by a grant from the American Association of Community Colleges and the Charles Stuart Mott Foundation, this seminar will include a panel discussion by business leaders representing the growing industry sectors in Burlington County.

The outcome of this panel discussion will be to define the skills that entry-level employees should have in order to successfully secure employment in local high-demand workforce sectors. Panelists will also discuss their experiences meeting human capital needs to ensure continuous growth. Higher education panelists will discuss the resources available to small business owners and entrepreneurs, including Virtual Incubation, and how it can support business development.
