Through strong partnerships with business and industry, Davie County Schools and Davidson-Davie Community College Davie County we have several programs that connect employers to students to provide career awareness, onsite tours, work-based learning opportunities, post-secondary education opportunities, and pathways to 21st-century careers.
Tools That Help Employers Rise to the Challenge of a Global Market
Our existing employers are facing unprecedented challenges as they compete in the global marketplace. As a local resource, DavieCONNECT provides business & industry leaders with the streamlined information they need to take advantage of the vast resources available to them. State and federal workforce programs offer several training grants to assist with upskilling existing employees or on-the-job training for new hires.
DavieCONNECT partners with NCWorks, PTRC, Davidson-Davie Community College, and Davie Chamber to host regular recruiting events to connect employers with job seekers. Recruiting events are onsite or virtual and may include multiple companies or on location for a single employer. These events and recruiting opportunities are found on our website: www.DavieWORKS.com.
