“Skills To Pay The Bills”
 Use the local Chamber of Commerce
 Cross county lines
 Think about companies in your area and what skills
they have to offer - Really explore with them and ask:
“What skills can you offer?”
 May want to have some examples of what they can
do – career tours, teaching teachers, etc
 Build a relationship
 Be Creative / Think Outside the Box
