Call for Industry Videos
To help NH businesses in a small way maintain connections with NH schools while social distancing is in under way, the NH ELO Network is looking to create online resources for students. They are looking for local businesses and organizations to send videos about their business which they can share with students. 

Listen to this audio request which explains the project in more detail. Community partners can submit their videos via email.

Read more about the project on the NH ELO Network website.


In response to the covid-19 pandemic, we have removed all school recruitment events for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

Schools interested in sharing upcoming career fairs, please email information to Jennifer Landon, Director of Education and Workforce Development.
