Career fairs/events are a great way to introduce our students to a variety of options they might not have previously considered. It can be the first step in empowering a student to visualize a positive future for themselves.
- Be sure to include careers from all the clusters and a variety of levels of required education.
- Be mindful of including people who have chosen non-traditional jobs related to gender.
- Prepare the students ahead of time by generating a list of questions they might ask the visitors (what is your favorite part of your job? Biggest challenge? How do you dress? What kind of training or education?).
- Hands-on activities go a long way in holding students’ attention and engaging them in the activity.
