IDEA invites local professionals to participate in our Quarter 1 Career Expo on October 29 from 2:15pm-3:15pm at our school, located at 1027 45th St NE. The deadline to sign up is October 20.
It’s critically important that our students have the ability to access and interact with career professionals to help them better visualize their potential future and what it will take to get there. Our career expos are a quarterly high point for our scholars each year. We hope you can help make our next event the best one yet! Register here!
Every scholar will participate and is able to engage directly with two or three presenters over the course of the hour. Each rotation lasts about 15 to 20 minutes and includes approximately 15 scholars.
We will support presenters with a student moderator who will ask each presenter about their career, the path to get there, and advice to others who may want to pursue a similar career. The more things presenters can have for "show and tell" the better. We’ve had demonstrations, videos showing presenters' workplaces, even a team approach with one professional bringing a couple of colleagues to show a fuller picture of the career path!
This year, we are also adding a virtual option, though in-person is preferred. This provides an additional dynamic offering that we are excited to provide!
Prospective presenters are asked to RSVP by October 20, 2021 at 2 pm. If you can’t make it this time around, not to worry! Our next expos will take place on January 28, April 5, and June 17.
