OSUIT showcases women’s career opportunities

The Times

Okmulgee, OK — The “Women in Technology” event at OSU Institute of Technology will expose women to the excellent career opportunities for them in high-paying, technology-driven fields. The 3rd annual event will be held Friday, Nov. 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the OSUIT campus in Okmulgee.

Prospective students will engage in activities and demonstrations to better understand the academic and skill requirements for career opportunities available through OSUIT. In addition, various industry representatives will be in attendance—the people who hire OSUIT graduates.

Ina Agnew, OSUIT’s vice president of Student Services, said, “With the ‘Women in Technology’ event, our goal is to break down stereotypes and show females that there are many opportunities available to them in careers that they might not traditionally consider.  The industries that are represented at this event provide stable, high-paying careers with quick advancement for females.”

Participants at the “Women in Technology” event can select a “career track” which will pair up academic areas based on the similar skill sets and abilities required to succeed. The career tracks are:

• Creative Design and Engineering Track (Visual Communications and Engineering Technologies programs)

* Cyber Forensics and Transportation Track (Information Technology and Automotive Technologies programs)

• Food and Body Mobility Track (Culinary Arts and Orthotic and Prosthetic Technologies programs)

• Health and Construction (Nursing and Construction Technology programs)
