Is your high school student interested in certain careers and wondering what that specific career track could entail? This week there is an opportunity for them to find out first-hand – and from community members.
The Snoqualmie Valley School District is focused on its mission statement of preparing students for College, Career and Citizenship. With that mission in mind, it announced that on the morning of Wednesday, February 6th, Mount Si High School will host a Career Fair on its main campus.
In collaboration with the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce, about 50 professionals were recruited from a wide range of careers. These local business people are taking time out of their busy days to speak with students about their professions.
Last week, MSHS and Two Rivers 10 to 12 grade students reviewed the list of career presenters and registered for three rotations at Wednesday’s Career Fair. Industries represented include law enforcement, aerospace, environmental, broadcasting, software development, authors, biotech, architecture, business, marketing, law, communications, engineering, therapists, health care, the arts, and many more. Included in this group are at least six Mount Si High School alumni.
The presentations will include information about the career and its education and training pathways. This year, the Career Fair is only for grades 10 to 12. Once the freshman are back on the main campus, future Career Fairs will include 9th grade.
