In today’s world where educators, counselors and administrators are diligently working to provide quality  education to all students, there is an even greater need to ensure ALL students have an advantageous path after graduation.

By starting exploration early, students are able to see the world of options open to them. Career exploration experiences and opportunities can improve academic performance and students' knowledge of available career options, encouraging them to develop and work toward goals during the critical years when they are also beginning to venture beyond the orbit of their parents.

Join us on Tuesday, October 27th as we bring together a panel in a roundtable discussion to share how they have created and hosted Virtual Career Fairs. From getting started, formatting, and onboarding business partners, to student participation and outcomes.

No matter where students are in their exploration, we can all help them on their journey to one day obtain their goals.
