On Tuesday, October 17, 2023, Carbondale Area held its annual Career Day, in which presenters from various local businesses, organizations, and affiliations came to introduce students to possible various career pathways students may choose to enter into in the future. Students were provided with presentations on careers, colleges, trade schools, work force opportunities, and military options. These presentations outlined the various paths students must take to achieve future success in their chosen fields. 7th and 8th grade students spent the day making a difference while cleaning up around our town. 9th grade students toured the local Career Technology Center with guides who are current CA students and attend CTC. 10th grade students had the opportunity to take the ASVAB. A college fair was also offered for the juniors and seniors. Some teachers even got involved in offering “adulting classes.” These included: writing resumes, budgeting, cooking, manners, and practical life skills such as changing a tire. The significance this event holds is that it may “open students’ eyes” to career pathways they may have never considered otherwise and may help narrow down a college-bound student’s list of potential colleges. We look forward to continuing to Charge into the Future!
