2020-2021 Career Exploration Session Sponsors
Career Exploration Sessions invite professionals from an occupational area to discuss their profession and educational background to a large group of students. The professionals give real-world insight into the reality of their job.
All Career Exploration Sessions will be run virtually, following a specific lesson plan template. Career Transitions is working closely with hosts to create an experience that is as engaging and interactive as possible. Video footage shot on location is added whenever possible so that more visuals are shared with students.
Registration can be done by either the school or the student, with no forms required to participate.
Sessions will run sometime between 4:00 and 6:00pm on designated dates. See “Career Exploration Session Options” tab below to see dates – please note, these will be updated continuously as dates are confirmed by hosts – CHECK BACK OFTEN!
All sessions will be recorded and posted on the website within 5 days of the live event under “Career Exploration Session Options”
