Jane Of All Trades Program Coming To MPTC Next Month

Moraine Park Technical College’s Fond du Lac campus will host a “Jane of All Trades” event on Wednesday, March 7th.  MPTC President Bonnie Baerwald says it’s about engaging more female students in male dominated fields. Women can choose from nine different career paths. Baerwald says, “There’s a laundry list of programs and it ranges from Automotive, Civil Engineering, Criminal Justice, Electricity, IT-Network Specialist, Mechanical Design, Electromechanical Technology, Metal Fabrication, Process Engineering and one of the more popular programs Welding.” Many of the jobs in those fields are high paying. Baerald says, “And in fact as I talked to employers a lot of employers really are looking for females in these occupations they recognize that having a diverse workforce is good for their customer service and quite frankly their industry.” Faculty will give 30 minute demonstrations. Participants can choose three programs to visit.  The event is from 5 to 7 p.m. It’s free and you can register at the Moraine Park website.
