Bishop Allen Academy 2012 Career Fair

Third Annual Career Day a Smashing Success!

On December 4th, the Student Services department held its third annual Career Day for Grade 11 students.  More than 40 presenters from a diverse array of fields volunteered their time to speak to almost 400 students about the “intangibles” involved in their chosen careers.  Speakers outlined their day-to-day tasks, their career path, the pros and cons of their particular field of work and shared advice with the students.  This anecdotal information is added to the other career research students have been doing to help them flesh out which career paths might be for them.  It also provides a critical opportunity to ask valuable questions of people actually working in their areas of interest.

Representatives from the fields of Health and Wellness, Arts & Creative Careers, Business, Community Support and High Skills and Technological Careers were all represented.   The experience was of great value to students and the presenters themselves also enjoyed the opportunity to interact with our students.  Many presenters were impressed by the students’ attentiveness and the caliber of the questions that were asked.
