The work force in many industries is rapidly changing.  Gail Cruikshank, Talent Director from the Greater St. Cloud Development Corporation, joined me on WJON today.  We talked about students as early as sophomores having opportunities to see careers they might be interested in based on programs and events that are available.  Gail encourages parents to be involved in their kids decisions about a career but the decisions should be made by the young people.  Listen to the conversation below.
