Talk & Tour Career Series
The Talk & Tour Series is a career exploration program designed to increase awareness of diverse careers available in high-demand career sectors.
Through an informal "talk show style" format, a panel of professionals in select industries will share their own career paths, the inside scoop on what their jobs are really like, along with their perspective on what you can do to prepare for a career that interests you. This is your chance to ask questions, get valuable career information and take an action step in figuring out your own career direction. A tour of the host site will be provided, with a special focus on seeing the latest technology and innovation happening in the workplace. A variety of industries and occupations will be highlighted.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to participate.
SCECHs are pending for Talk & Tours - 2.0 SCECH per event. Sign up at the Kent ISD PD Hub here.
