Every spring people from various careers come to visit our school to give advice to students, speak about their occupations and give students an idea about what they might want to do in the future. This also offers a great pathway for students who know what they want to do have high school, but have no idea how to get there.

The visitors represented a wide range of careers, including nurses, an actor, a teacher, correction officer, lawyer, makeup artist, and even a professional boxer. Students were most excited to learn about how these people with interesting careers figured out what they wanted to do, chose the college they wanted to go to, survived college and how they started out on their dream jobs.

These visitors help students visualize what their future is going to be like. Mr. John Hauser, former teacher, gave advice on what schools students could attend, told them how to set up their future classrooms and disclosed the benefits of being a teacher. Ms. Kim Jansen, cosmetologist told students what are the best schools are and what connections to make in the industry. The psychologist gave advice on how to deal with an emotional profession.

Students also heard about the difficulties of the jobs that they had considered pursuing. For instance, a person who does not enjoy school should not consider becoming a doctor, whose education can continue for as many as eleven years after receiving the bachelor’s degree.  Students were able to get a realistic view of what a profession intails and begin to prepare for it.

“Career day provides an opportunity for students to discover possible new interests through the passions of others,” siad Geoffrey Vargas.
