We are looking forward to another fun and enlightening Careers Day for our Grade 10 students, which will take place on the afternoon of Thursday, March 14.
Last year’s Careers Day featured an amazing lineup of professionals working in medicine, energy, marketing, arts and design, sports, technology and industry, education, hospitality and cuisine, research, the UN and the World Bank, Vietnamese government, non-profits, and start-ups who told our students the story of their careers: ups and downs, twists and turns, success and failure. The objective is for our students to learn about different industries and sectors while also understanding that career journeys are rarely in a straight line. This year we will again ask presenters to use the creative Pecha Kucha presentation format and we will also host small-group discussions between students and working professionals.
We are looking both for parents who are willing to deliver Pecha Kucha presentations as well as to talk to students in small groups informally about their careers.
You might learn something about yourself or have a new perspective after telling your story to students!
