Oceanside High to host a career day March 11

Organizations wishing to demonstrate their professions are invited
Feb 11, 2020

Rockland — On Wednesday, March 11, Oceanside High School will once again host a career day for roughly 450 students. The career day will support students to explore a range of careers by engaging with visiting professionals in those fields.

The school welcomes businesses and organizations to join the event from 8 to 10:15 a.m. after registering. Set up for the event is between 7 to 7:45 a.m. for those wishing to help.

There are a couple of ways to be involved in this career-focused event:

Participate in the Career and College Expo

Set up a display or a small, engaging, hands-on activity in the gym for four rotations of roughly 100 students each. Students will stop by and connect with representatives from businesses, schools, and non-profits to explore careers and college majors.

Lead a Career Breakout Session

The high school is looking for about 20 organizations to teach or co-teach four 30 minute, back-to-back interactive sessions about a particular career area.

These sessions can use technology, outdoor space, demonstrations or any other hands-on activities that can be accomplished with 15 to 25 students in a 30 minute period.

The purpose of the breakout sessions is to give students a taste of what it's like working in many different careers. It is also helpful if participants can connect educational opportunities with the careers that are presenting about.
