ARE YOU HIRING?
WINONA STATE UNIVERSITY
In this Wear It Wednesday video, Christie and Emma look at filling workforce from a different angle: education. Focus isn't on a specific company's hiring needs, but how we prepare many future employees right here in Winona with programs at Winona State University. We also learn about options that the university has for building on education and training for company's current employees, showing just how broad of an economic impact Winona State has on the workforce population for our area.
