Weston High School will be hosting its eighth Career Day on Wednesday, March 5. You will have the opportunity to meet more than 85 speakers whose careers include the arts, business ownership, education, engineering, environment, hospitality, law, media, medical research, medicine, non-profits, politics, science, and sports.
Our speakers represent a wide range of experiences. Some knew what they wanted to do when they were in high school, while others have made major changes in the middle of their careers. ALL of our speakers are interested in engaging with you in a wide variety of interactive discussions and high technology presentations.
Career Day is an integral part of the WHS School-to-Careers Program, which includes the Sophomore Career Seminar class and the Senior Internship class. The day will give you the opportunity to explore possible career paths and provide insight into the specific requirements, daily responsibilities, and extraordinary experiences associated with each career. You will have the opportunity to ask questions.
Each of you should consider this day as a time to learn more about which courses you should be taking in high school and college to prepare you for a particular career.
Juniors and Seniors, please use this day to identify possible internships you would enjoy during the Senior Internship in May.
You will be able to attend four individual speaker sessions. The speakers have been scheduled by blocks, so you will need to make selections within each block, except lunch. PLEASE READ THIS GUIDE CAREFULLY. PLEASE KEEP THIS GUIDE FOR REFERENCE IN YOUR CAREER CLASSES.
Career Day is organized and made possible by the work of faculty, parents, and volunteers. The Weston Education Enrichment Fund (WEEFC) and the PTO Creative Arts Council sponsor this event, and the Weston High School PTO provides parent volunteers for this program.
