Wheatley Career Day – April 18, 2019 (New Date) – Mark Your Calendar!

March 22, 2019

Ladies and Gentlemen:

In our global society, there are many factors that contribute to the success of high school students such as academic performance, attendance patterns, and school engagement. Phillis Wheatley High School believes that early introduction to the workforce for students will help them understand the value of their education, and how it leads to impactful, future decisions. In effort to increase student excitement about the future, Phillis Wheatley High School presents: Career Readiness and Exploration Event 2019.

If you are looking for a great way to impact the youth in our city, please consider serving as a presenter at our event. We are looking for individuals from various fields to speak passionately about their profession and the path that led them to success. It would be our honor to include you as a presenter or a career ambassador who will answer students’ questions as a part of a small group Q and A session.

Career paths we would like to see represented are:
• Architecture/ Construction
• Finance
• Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)
• Arts & Communications
• Entrepreneurship
• Health Science
• Law & Public Safety
• Education

As a presenter, we ask that you:
• Provide a brief biography to share with guests
• Be available for Q & A from students
• Share specific examples of how high school students can begin preparing for a job in your industry
• Be available for the entire portion of the program

The event is scheduled for April 18, 2019 at Phillis Wheatley High School from 8:45 am – 11:00 Breakfast will be served 8:00 am.
