Tips for Career Day Presenters
(Speaking to Students about Your Career)

Here are some suggestions to help make your Career Day presentations a success. Each
career and industry are unique, so plan what works for you and your area of expertise.

  1. Briefly introduce yourself (schools, internships, first jobs, etc.).
  2. Explain how your work relates to classes they might be taking in school such as
    math, business, technology courses, etc.
  3. Share any helpful advice that you wish you learned or things you had done in
    school to be more prepared for your career.
  4. Keep in mind that your audience is 14-18-year-old high school students. For many
    of them, this is their first introduction to the professional world beyond the
    classroom.
  5. Engaging students in a hands-on activity like brainstorming or a case study,
    sharing anecdotes and asking them questions makes it fun for you and them.
  6. Please allow time at the end of your presentation for students to ask questions.
  7. Talk about your career path and why you chose to pursue it or how you ended up
    where you are.
  8. Explain what you like best/least about your job and/or career field.
  9. What are your next steps and/or goals for your own career?
  10. There will be 5-15 students in each session.
