Students throughout Queen Creek Unified School District are participating in numerous career exploration events and activities provided by their schools.
Some of these events include an invited guest speaker, career Q&A panels, college fairs and presentations, according to a release.
During the third quarter, all high schools are hosting career panel events, giving students the chance to ask questions about the guest speakers’ fields, ask for career advice, and make a game plan for after graduation.
Creed Ricks, a Crismon High School freshman, attended his school’s Career Day Expo and learned about where he can go to achieve his career goal.
“I learned about Embry-Riddle (Aeronautical University) and how I could go there to become a pilot,” said Ricks.
Isabela Merdrick-Lopez, also a freshman from Crismon High School, expressed how the expo taught her important lessons she can start using today.
“In one of the presentations, they talked about how you need a good life and work balance, and that’s important for any job or even school,” said Lopez.
Career Day events will continue throughout the remainder of the school year.
