Chesapeake Works World of Work

The Chesapeake Works Worlds of Work (WOW) EXPO will feature hands-on opportunities for students to experience a "moment  in the life" of an industry professional within the regional most in-demand industries.

Chesapeake Works
The Worlds of Work Career Expo is a fun, educational, interactive, hands-on opportunity for students to become familiar with a broad overview of high-demand, high-wage career opportunities available in the region.

The purpose of this expo is to create awareness about exciting career options among students and educators while addressing workforce needs in the region. Existing employers in the region continue to have unfilled job openings due to a shortage of skilled workers. In addition, employers face additional shortages over the next few years due to retirements of up to 50% of their workforce.

This free event is hosted by the Hampton Roads Workforce Council and the City of Chesapeake Public Library, Chesapeake Public Schools, Chesapeake Economic Development, Hampton Roads Chamber, Tidewater Community College and Old Dominion University.
