Students throughout the Queen Creek Unified School District are now taking part in 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 press release.
During the third quarter, all high schools are hosting career panel events that will give students the chance to ask questions about the guest speakers’ fields, get career advice and make a game plan for after graduation.
Crismon High freshman, Creed Ricks, 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,” Ricks stated in the release.
Isabela Merdrick-Lopez, also a freshman from Crismon High, said 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,” Lopez stated.
Career Day events will continue throughout the remainder of the school year.
