    The Forty-hour Internship Tryout is a program designed to provide every high school student prior to graduation with an opportunity to experience a non-paid 40-hour internship experience before they purse a technical, associate or bachelor education.  Pettis County is a Certified Work Ready Community (CWRC), so it is an ideal area for a first-of-its-kind prototype to be implemented.

    Ed Watkins, Watkins Enterprises, will present information about the FIT program and how members of the HR community can play a key role in the program.

    Linda Christle, Executive Director - Sedalia Pettis County Economic Development, will also be presenting information on the status of employment in Pettis County.
