Tri-County Welcomes Guest Panel to Speak to Freshman

Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School welcomed a panel of eight speakers, four of which are alum, who are in non-traditional careers on December 1, 2021. A non-traditional career is defined is by the US Department of Labor as an occupation in which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25% of the individuals employed in such occupation. The panel included an early educator, firefighter/paramedic, plumber, police officer, cosmetologist, engineer, salon owner, and dental assistant.

Each panelist had the opportunity to speak about what and who inspired them to pursue their careers, what a typical day at work looks like, the positive and negative aspects of having a non-traditional career, and offered advice to students who are interested in pursuing a career in a non-traditional role. Salon owner, Ken Tracy, was encouraged by his high school guidance counselor to attend Malden School for Girls in the 1960s and during the visit his passion was ignited. He noted that in his early days as a hair stylist his friends would ask him why. After he became a salon owner and found success in the profession he loved, his friends apologized for the negative comments they had made. 

Many of the panelists noted the positives of being in a non-traditional career. For the early childhood educator he has found that male students flock to him as one of the only male teachers and seem to find it easier to make a connection with him. The mechanical engineer noted that she was frequently the only female on a team and was called upon to work on machines because her smaller hands were able to fit into spaces her male counterparts could not. The female police sergeant noted that her communication skills and compassion has allowed her to defuse tension during calls.

After the discussion students were able to ask questions of the panel and the freshman had thoughtful queries to help them understand if they would like to pursue a non-traditional career.

This free program is available through a grant from the Massachusetts Council on Aging (MCOA) and the Executive Office of Elder Affairs

  • Identify and develop mutually beneficial relationships

  • Succeed at networking , even if you are an introvert
  • Turn conversations into opportunities.

 

Why you should attend: Studies show most jobs are landed via networking, but most people still don't know how to network effectively. 

Diane Darling is a master networker. Listen to her and you will significantly enhance your networking efforts and augment your odds of landing  a job sooner.

In the News: "a good start"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"A proposal from Gov. Charlie Baker to close a gap in skilled technical workers is a good start but needs funding, recruitment and capacity if it is to succeed, according to a local lawmaker and school administrators.

In its fiscal 2021 budget proposal submitted last month, the Baker administration proposed approximately $15 million to launch Career Technical Initiative, a multi-year investment to train an additional 20,000 skilled workers over the next four years by offering three teaching shifts a day at local vocational schools.

Aligned with the executive offices of education, economic development, housing, and labor and workforce development, Baker’s Workforce Skills Cabinet aims to provide career training opportunities not only for students enrolled in vocational schools but also for traditional high school students and adults.

“I like the concept certainly because I know that we definitely could use more skilled workers, and I think this concept would certainly address that issue,” said Rep. Jeffrey Roy, D-Franklin."

“You’ve got to regard education as a lifetime process"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"For generations, the career path for smart kids around Detroit was to get an engineering or business degree and get hired by an automaker or parts supplier. If you worked hard and didn’t screw up, you had a job for life with enough money to raise a family, take vacations and buy a weekend cottage in northern Michigan. 
Now that once-reliable route to prosperity appears to be vanishing, as evidenced by General Motors’ announcement this week that it plans to shed 8,000 white-collar jobs on top of 6,000 blue-collar ones. 
It was a humbling warning that in this era of rapid and disruptive technological change, those with a college education are not necessarily insulated from the kind of layoffs factory workers know all too well. 
The cutbacks reflect a transformation underway in both the auto industry and the broader U.S. economy, with nearly every type of business becoming oriented toward computers, software and automation."

https://www.milforddailynews.com/zz/news/20181201/salaried-workers-beware-gm-cuts-are-warning-for-all

This is not new. One can debate as to when this phenomenon started but I'd posit that it began in earnest with the great recession in 2007-2008.

I was affected at that time in late 2008, one of 3,000 cast off by a giant in financial services. Note, the company is still a giant in financial services.

The Bureau of Labor maintains the stats on unemployment and while the 'one' rate is easily quoted, there are other rates that are more insightful to showing what is happening with the work force.

The six state measures are based on the same definitions as those published for the U.S.:
  • U-1, persons unemployed 15 weeks or longer, as a percent of the civilian labor force;
  • U-2, job losers and persons who completed temporary jobs, as a percent of the civilian labor force;
  • U-3, total unemployed, as a percent of the civilian labor force (this is the definition used for the official unemployment rate);
  • U-4, total unemployed plus discouraged workers, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus discouraged workers;
  • U-5, total unemployed, plus discouraged workers, plus all other marginally attached workers, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all marginally attached workers; and
  • U-6, total unemployed, plus all marginally attached workers, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all marginally attached workers.
https://www.bls.gov/cps/cps_htgm.htm

This PDF shows the unemployment rate for 2013 to 2017. I'll have to spend some time to put it together to show the year over year changes. This only depicts the stats for the individual years  https://www.bls.gov/lau/maps/maseries.pdf

The Bureau of Labor also provides an outlook for careers based upon the stats they have acquired.  https://www.bls.gov/careeroutlook/

The chart shows the percentage change in employment for selected industries from June 2009, the end of the recession, through August 2017

“We’re not your grandfather’s vocational school”

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"Annalise Kane, 12, joked with her parents while she sutured digital tendons in hip surgery Saturday. 
“It’s fun,” she said, of the computer program, set up in a Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School medical classroom. 
Mock surgery was one of dozens of career-oriented activities in which visitors to the high school could participate Saturday, during the school’s Showcase Spectacular. 
“It gets the younger kids more interested in coming to a place like this, rather than a (traditional) high school,” dental assisting student Lauryn Blye said."
