Career Expo - Local Employers, Local Students!

Show our local students that they can be successful in our region! Help educate our kids for their future employment and ensure your continued growth and success.

Cowlitz County Conference Center

Give the Chamber office a call at 360.423.8400 for more information.


The Kelso Longview Chamber, Cowlitz Business and Education Connection and the newly formed Cowlitz STEM Network are partnering together to bring the first all-inclusive Career Fair to the area.  8th, 9th and 10th graders from Cowlitz and Wahkiakum Counties will be attending... yes, we are expecting over 1000 local students. 

The goal is to give these kids information about the careers local businesses have in our area. When kids think of PeaceHealth/St. John’s they think Doctors and Nurses, we want to make sure they know there are 1600 jobs at PeaceHealth/St. Johns and only about 600 of them are caregivers...  meaning there are nearly 1000 jobs/careers in IT, Tech Support, Security, Customer Service, Culinary and much much more.

What jobs/careers does your business have?   Probably more than the students know about.  Help them have the knowledge to make good decisions.

What education does a student need to get that job/career started.   

Please plan to attend, set up a booth and help our kids understand the opportunities and the education necessary to get that job/career right here in our area. 


You can go to our website at or you can call the Chamber at 360-423-8400 to sign up.  We have space for 80 businesses. We will follow up with you about the details and any assistance you might need to make this experience the best it can be for your business and for the students.

We can make this an AMAZING event... Local Businesses helping Local Students.
