Posted: Friday, October 14, 2016

The eighth annual Life Long Learning Career Day will be held on Thursday, November 3 at Huntington North High School. State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Glenda Ritz, will be visiting the Career Day and also the Huntington County Community Learning Center.

The information presented at Career Day enables freshmen and other invited students from the high school to make career choices while in high school and take the appropriate classes. Ritz will arrive during the second session of Career Day at approximately 11:15 a.m. Her visit will continue at the Learning Center.

Ten different careers will be featured in individual booths called “career pods” with those experienced in the particular field available to talk with the 400 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.
