Sophomore Class Travels to Wayne for Career Day

by Angelica Volquardsen

The PHS sophomore class and guidance department traveled to Wayne State College for Sophomore Career Day on Tuesday, October 17.

There were over 900 students in attendance at the career day from many schools as far away as Boyd County. The purpose of the day was to introduce students to different careers and help them figure out their path to success. Around 100 adults volunteered to share information about their work and career with the students.

The students went to three breakout sessions in the morning to hear someone speak about their work. Students chose sessions according to careers they might want to do in the future. It was a great opportunity for them to see what life outside of high school is like.

Then, in the afternoon students went to two more breakout sessions, which gave students additional tips. One was ”A Path to Success,” which talked about what students can do now and in their futures to prepare for college and life after college. Another breakout session was “Are You Ready,” which told students how to fill out a resume and apply for jobs.

School counselor Mary Birch said, “I am so pleased that our students in Northeast Nebraska have this opportunity. There is nothing like learning about a career from someone who is working in it.”. Krista Bailey, who also represented the school counselor’s department at the career day, said, “I think the students found it was way more than they expected it to be. There were way more career opportunities than they thought they could learn about.”
