When Carter Guthrie graduated from high school, he already had a well-paying job and a 401k retirement plan. This door to a promising career wouldn’t have opened without the Jackson area’s innovative efforts to create a talent pipeline.

These workforce development programs are crucial for Jackson’s ongoing economic success.

“These programs help ensure that students are well prepared for the workforce,” says Jackson Chamber Vice President of Talent Development Vicki Bunch, who notes that hiring well-qualified candidates creates a ripple effect that helps communities grow. “For every manufacturing job created, there are over three other jobs added that impact our economy.”
