Over 800 high school juniors will be participating in this event to learn vital skills in the area of career development.
The success of this event is due to local volunteers and sponsors. Besides career speakers, mock interviewers, and volunteer commitment, financial assistance is needed.
Students will attend three career occupation panels. Each panel has three speakers specific to a career track. Each speaker has 5-8 minutes to present on their career. Speakers provide students with a snapshot of a typical day in the life of that profession.
Prior to the Career Convention, students will be building their resumes, as well as developing their interviewing skills. At the event, mock interviewers will be given students to interview. Each mock interviewer will interview then critique the students in 15 minute intervals.
