Many of the students attending Industry Day are preparing for the future. The interaction between volunteers and students is a valuable exchange in sparking the passion and interest these young adults will need as they prepare for the world of work. Moreover, we believe that this event will create a platform for blending resources and increasing collaboration and support among the various industry participants.
The daylong career day features a series of presentations around the school’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – S.T.E.M. – programs. Approximately 50 employees from companies that comprise a TransTech Academy Industry Partners Consortium and other organizations participate in Industry Day.
Industry Day aims to give students exposure to careers they may have considered as well as introduce them to career choices currently not on their radar. It also shows the connection between school and real life by demonstrating how presenters used their education to achieve their goals. But most of all it provides students role models and opportunities to interact with professionals.
It's good to talk.
