Did you know that 5th grade students are eager to learn about career opportunities? On April 27, the Longview Chamber of Commerce, Longview Economic Development Corp., and Junior Achievement hosted a Career Showcase at Longview ISD’s Ware Elementary, our local partner school.
Eight businesses took part in the event. Luis Ibarra and Lisa Jones, Sr. HR Generalists, represented Komatsu Longview Operations and shared with the 98 students our safety culture, the type of equipment we manufacture, and the education requirements for different levels of employment opportunities.
The students were amazed at our big ‘trucks’, had lots of great questions and several promised we would be seeing them in the future as an employee!
