PCC organizing virtual ceremony for graduating class, online ‘Open House’ presentation to go live this month

Written by Fantasia Harvey

Online ‘Open House’ Presentation to Go Live this Month—

The PCC Office of Recruitment is creating a multimedia presentation to give high school seniors and their parents details on programs Pitt offers and the kinds of jobs individuals who complete them can expect to find.

The information, according to PCC Director of Recruitment John Carrere, was going to be shared during NextFest in April, but the college had to cancel the on-campus event due to COVID-19. “NextFest is an annual open house-style presentation, bringing PCC academic departments and local businesses together to share pathways to education and employment,” Carrere says. “PCC partners with the Rivers East Workforce Development Board on the program to give potential students an idea of how to identify their career interests and hear about opportunities to become professionals in those fields.”

Carrere says the presentation his office is creating will include the PCC admission process and messages from local business and industry partners that regularly employ Pitt graduates. There will also be academic sessions covering curricula options and opportunities for students to transfer to four-year institutions. “So much has changed in the world in such a short period of time that it’s not surprising to see many prospective learners seeking avenues for employment and college credit closer to home,” Carrere said. “NextFest will offer valuable insight into why PCC is the best choice for high school seniors once they’ve received their diplomas.” Carrere says the NextFest presentation will premiere on PCC’s Facebook Live channel on May 20 at 7 p.m. and remain on social media platforms for viewing.
