Workforce Vibe Podcast Talks to High Schoolers About Their Future

The City’s Department of Workforce Development, housed at the Missouri Job Center, has released its latest podcast episode featuring two local high school students and a staff member from the Boys and Girls Club. This third in a four-part series is focused on the generations and how each views their place in today’s workforce or future workforce.

Workforce Vibe host Sally Payne sat down with two high school students from Parkview and Glendale to find out their future plans. “I really enjoyed talking with these two young men about how they see themselves now and where they plan to be in five years,” said Sally Payne, Director of Workforce Development for the City of Springfield. “One of the things I found most fascinating is their views on social media and the need to unplug from those platforms, and the personal connections they have found at the Boys and Girls Club,” she added.

Workforce Vibe can be accessed on most major podcast platforms including Apple iTunes and Spotify. You may also listen to all Workforce Vibe episodes on under the podcasts section.
