Career Chats - Virtual Career Exploration Series
Kent ISD’s Career Chats are designed to provide 7-12 grade students a virtual opportunity to meet real professionals employed in real jobs. This series of 30 minute sessions will highlight professions from a variety of career pathways, giving students the opportunity to learn more about a career of interest, or to explore new options. Professionals will share their own career path, along with valuable industry insights that support student career exploration. Students will have an opportunity to ask their own questions through the platform’s chat function.
Additional Career Chats will be offered during the 2020/2021 school year. Please check back in late August for the new schedule of events.
If you are interested in being one of our Professional Guests at a future Career Chat, please complete this brief form, and we will follow-up with you!
