OESJ Students Explore Different Careers

Students in Ms. Jewett's English Class spent the week exploring careers with the help of Business and Careers teacher Ms. Bellinger. They were given information on many options available in today's economy, including advanced manufacturing, and careers that address the "skills gap", all which could lead to promising careers and the revitalization of communities. The week ended with a college fair field trip organized by Guidance Counselor Chris Vanwie, where students were able to speak to recruiters about higher education programs, apprenticeships, and internships that would help them achieve their career goals. The students are working on a written career plan which will be shared with the School's Career Transition Specialist, Elizabeth Wild, and revised as they approach graduation.
