We are better when we work together and promote together. The re-imagined Fairmont Area Life will be a one-stop-shop for all things Fairmont. Showcasing through photos and guest articles what it’s like to work, shop, eat, play and live in the Fairmont area. This is a visual resource with top-level information that can then direct locals, visitors, or those looking to relocate to the correct website or information source for deeper info.

HOW CAN WE RETAIN LOCAL GRADUATES?
There is an abundance of opportunity for local high school graduates to build a successful career right here in the Fairmont area! An effort to inform students and parents of these opportunities is now underway. The CareerWISE literature was developed through a cooperative effort between the Fairmont Area Chamber of Commerce and the Fairmont Economic Development Authority (FEDA). Key information on current workforce trends and in-demand careers in Southwestern Minnesota are presented along with resources for individuals to research local job openings, career cross-sections, and educational options. The back of the flyer features local opportunities for high school graduates to connect with apprenticeships, on-the-job training and tuition assistance programs from area businesses and organizations.
