Many communities now recognize the value of helping students envision their future career in order to ensure their postsecondary education plans support their goals. Career Fairs have proliferated to expose students to careers they may not have considered or been exposed to. Yet students are often ill-equipped to make the most of these opportunities, like how to make a favorable impression with an employer while assessing whether a particular field is a fit for their strengths.
For this webinar, Kathy McDonald, FCAN’s Assistant Director for Network Partnerships turns to Director of Programs at Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay, Anna Ryan. Junior Achievement has developed a new Career Fair curriculum for high school, middle school, and elementary students. This curriculum helps students plan ahead to get the most out of the event, provides tips on what to do when they are at the fair, and offers guidance for reflection and follow up after the event. Anna will share strategies for how to arm your students with the skills to make a Career Fair a worthwhile investment of time.
In this webinar you will learn:
- The most effective tools to help students prepare for a career fair.
- How to partner with your local Junior Achievement office for support.
Students can’t be what they can’t see, but a Career Fair is often not enough to help students make the connection to a bright future that aligns with their interests and talents. Helping students prepare to make a great impression, evaluate career options and reflect on their experience will help them make the most of the opportunity.
