Our Annual Employer Advisory Meetings 

Over 88 business partners from throughout the South Bay area, Los Angeles, and Orange County attended SoCal ROC’s annual Employer Advisory Committee Meetings on Thursday, January 28, 2016. All five career sectors, which include School of Art and Design, School of Engineering and Design, School of Finance and Business, School of Health Sciences, and School of Public and Consumer Services, met with representatives from related industries to discuss and review the curriculum for each program offered at SoCal ROC.

Advisory committee members and instructors met to discuss course outlines, technology trends, and labor market trends such as industry growth and hiring practices. The information from these industry experts is incorporated into planning for the upcoming school year to provide the best Career Technical Education opportunities for SoCal ROC students.  

Opportunities are also made available for many SoCal ROC students to obtain jobs and participate in externships. These partnerships contribute to the success of SoCal ROC, the leader in providing Career Technical Education programs to thousands of South Bay residents each year.

Longtime advisory committee member Wanza Tolliver from State Farm Insurance said, “The SoCal ROC students that I have hired have been well-prepared for entry level jobs in my agency.”

Thank you to all of the advisory committee members who participated and provide support to SoCal ROC.
