We Recognize, We Request Stickers!

Look what I found at Kiamichi Technology Center Atoka Campus! 

Does your WorkKeys assessment center have WorkKeys stickers?  Better yet, do your local companies have these posted? 
I challenge you to locate WorkKeys stickers in your local area, take a picture and forward to the CRC office.  Who will be first to meet this challenge?  Stay tuned!

OKCRC Annual Conference At-a-Glance

Now that you have selected your lunch hotspot, let's move on to the real business and glance at the breakout sessions. James Richter, Marketing Director, South Carolina Manufacturers Alliance and Jason Jones, Executive Director, Southwest Missouri WIB are guest speakers.  One of the main focuses from James and Jason will be employer engagement.  Three Oklahoma employers will be sharing their WorkKeys experiences along with one ACT staff and a host of site administrators sharing best practices on CareerReady101 and WorkKeys assessments. The detailed conference program will post early next week.  Remember you must register to attend even though there is no cost involved.  Register now.

Lunch On Your Own . . . OKCRC Conference

Priorities first . . . since I'm a foodie. Click here for the Lunch On Your Own Hotspots.  Lunch begins at 12:05 pm and ends at 1:30 pm which is plenty of time to eat at the hotspots I have identified.

Susan's 5 fabulous favorites are:
1.  Stuffed Olive--everything is tasty and delicious
2.  Victoria's Pasta Shop--you haven't lived until you have eaten their cheesy lasagna and cheesy garlic bread
3.  McAlister's Deli--yes, this is a chain but hey, they deliver tasty food and their tea is the best
4.  Alvarado's Mexican--highly recommend the white cheese sauce and red salsa; must try a sopapilla with brandy butter sauce
5.  Eagle One Pizza-large thin crust, the works pizza is mouth watering delicious

Check out the entire list and map by clicking the link above. Decisions, decisions . . .

The At-a-Glance will be posted next week.
