The annual Junior Career Day at Locust Valley High School brought more than 40 professionals together to answer questions and share details on their chosen careers.  High school juniors attended a workshop focused on the various paths to career success and visited the individual professionals for personalized and specific career information.

Sponsored by the WISE Internship Program, the career fair was organized by WISE advisors Kelly Reno and Tina Hament. The event brought the school community and the local community together for a program that introduced students to career options they may not have thought of previously.

David Green, a WISE program consultant led the workshop which included personal stories of success and steps to take now that will lead to better options later.

Ms. Reno, who is also one of the high school guidance counselors, said that it is very helpful to students to understand that there are many options for them. “The career fair has the potential to spark interest in students who may not have been thinking about a specific career path,” she said. “Holding the fair for current juniors can often influence the colleges that these students will apply to in a few months.”
