Career Partners¹ Telecommunications 2000, a program designed to prepare students for high tech careers, has developed a website that makes it easier than ever for young people to explore the fastest growing sector of
Oklahoma¹s economy.

Telecommunications 2000¹s slogan "Get Connected to the Business-Education
Partnership" is no empty promise. Log on to the website at www.tulsachamber.com/cpi, and you¹ll encounter colorful images of Telecom 2000 students as they interact with business leaders. Hyperlinks deliver
website visitors directly to job opportunities with some of Tulsa¹s largest employers and high tech companies.

Business and career opportunities displayed on the website are complemented by links with higher education. Information about technical certification and degree programs is instantly available to students who are considering careers in telecommunications. The site is updated regularly to feature
student activities and program developments.

The Telecommunications 2000 pilot program, managed by Career Partners, Inc., is housed at Tulsa Public School¹s Webster High School, and an Executive Committee provides oversight and guidance. Committee members include community leaders from MCI-WorldCom, Williams, Sabre, Inc., Southwestern Bell, Lucent Technologies, TCI Cablevision, TV Guide, and Norstan
Communications.

Sponsoring companies and their employees provide support for students and faculty by donating computer equipment to the school,
organizing field trips, and providing curriculum support, speakers, job
shadowing, internships and mentors.
