Mark your calendars for Career Day and Discover a World of Opportunity
Monday, October 16, 2017
TASIS students face a world of opportunity. Connecting their knowledge, skills, and passion to the right opportunity—the one that inspires them—can be challenging. Career Day at TASIS will help your child make these connections, and broaden their horizons by exposing them to the career paths of others in our community. With this insight, TASIS students will better understand the road ahead. Career Day will also help students understand how they can make best use of TASIS Royals Connect, the TASIS career shadowing program.
Career Day will feature professionals from fields ranging from the arts to finance. The morning sessions are focused on Juniors and Seniors, and will begin with a lead panel of powerful speakers who will introduce the disciplines featured in the morning breakout sessions. Each of these breakout sessions will include one or more speakers who will share the story of their career, and will finish with time to answer any questions. The afternoon sessions are crafted to meet the needs of ninth and tenth graders, and again will start with a lead panel of speakers who will introduce the disciplines featured in the afternoon breakout sessions.
