Career Day scheduled, Wednesday, October 11

Posted: Friday, September 1, 2017

The ninth annual Life Long Learning Career Day will be held on Wednesday, October 11 at Huntington North High School. This year’s event will be held in the Fieldhouse and will include all freshmen and senior students.

The information presented at Career Day enables the freshmen and senior students from the high school to make career choices while in high school and take the appropriate classes. After hearing from the local business community, the seniors were added this year to give businesses access to students that will be graduating in the spring, and the students an opportunity to visit with prospective employers.

Ten different careers will be featured in individual booths called “career pods” with those experienced in the particular field available to talk with the 800 plus students visiting the fair. The fields presented in the pods include agriculture, arts, technology and communication, architecture and construction, education and training, health services, financial services, manufacturing and science engineering, marketing and sales, public safety and security, hospitality and human services and transportation. Each student that participates will also explore the “soft skills” such as team work, dependability, reliability, motivation, customer focus, commitment, flexibility, communication and responsibility.
