ICR Future Career and College Fair

Please plan to attend the ICR Future Career and College Fair in Cedar Rapids on March 29. The ICR Future Career and College Fair is unlike any other in Eastern Iowa, bridging the gap between career exploration and college/training selection, to help students make informed decisions that align career interests with education and training selection.

Students of every age have something to gain at ICR Future. From learning about different career fields from Iowa employers, to speaking with more than 100 colleges, universities, apprenticeship representatives, and career experts, there’s something for everyone. There are even breakout sessions on employer expectations, career training, college planning, Iowa’s job outlook and more.
