District 214 Presents Annual "Career Nights" Programs
September 16, 2010
For the seventh consecutive year, Township High School District 214 will host three "Career Nights" throughout October and November at various high school sites in the district. Each night will focus on different career clusters, highlighting various professions in each category. With representatives from numerous businesses and industries, students and their parents will receive invaluable information on planning for the future.
The selection of presenters is configured based upon a student inventory, which every student completes in the spring. Top areas of interest are chosen and speakers are invited to informally talk with students about these areas. Attending a Career Night may also help open the door to enrollment in the District Internship Program, as well as Education and Medical Academies.
The first Career Night of the school year, "Careers in Arts & Communication/Human Services," will be held at Elk Grove High School on Thursday, Oct. 14.
"Careers in Health & Natural Resources" will take place at Buffalo Grove High School on Tuesday, Oct. 19.
Wheeling High School will be the site of the third and final night in the series, "Careers in Engineering/Industrial Technology/Business & Computers," on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
All events will begin at 7 p.m. with registration from 6:30-7 p.m. There will be two break-out sessions and a networking session and each program will conclude at 9 p.m. Please call Krista Paul at (847) 718-7947 for more information, or contact the Career Advisor at the individual schools: Buffalo Grove High School--Lynette Toussaint (847) 718-4236, Elk Grove High School--Jan Brottman (847) 718-4550, John Hersey High School--Cindy Behar (847) 718-4838, Prospect High School--Lori Price (847) 718-5421, Rolling Meadows High School--Karen Hibsch (847) 718-5805, and Wheeling High School--Ted Jackowski (847) 718-7049.
