Another key item in achieving our goal is a strong workforce. This year we are pleased to announce that Industrial Packaging Corporation has expanded to satisfy their increased customer base. With expansions and new business our workforce requirements continue to grow. In order to strengthen and build a skilled workforce, WDC is working with the Wilton Community School District, Durant Community School District and West Liberty Community School District as well as Industrial Leaders, and Eastern Iowa Community College to encourage future employees by highlighting the many career opportunities we have locally.
To date, we have been working with a Career Counselor for our local high schools students on Job Shadowing opportunities. We have students interested in the following job shadows: industrial electrician, welding, plumbing, ag management, ag business, engineering. Please call me or contact Ms. Andrea Shultice for more information. We continue to schedule tours for these students of our area business and industries as well as, organizing an annual career/job fair with Wilton and Durant High School students.
