Working with High School Teens is the most rewarding thing I do! These kids are actually starved for this kind of information. Most of us don't have a clue what we want to do once we've graduated from High School. Here we had an opportunity to bring in speakers from many different professions to interact with these students.
Police and Fire, Entertainment, Amusement Park, Environmental Opportunities, Accountants, Attorneys, Hospitality, Architecture, Non Profit, City Government, and Real Estate were just a few of the professionals sharing their career advice with students.
The students had lots of questions and really "listened" to what we all had to say! It was very encouraging to hear questions like: "What kind of education do I need for this job?" "What kind of jobs can I get without a college degree?" "What exactly is an entrepreneur and how do know that I would be one?"
All great questions! Lots of different answers! The success of the day was that the questions were asked and the participation was off the charts!
