Career Exploration Day at Dean

Posted by Martin Finucane March 14, 2007 10:43 AM


Hundreds of area high school students are expected to turn out for this morning's Career Exploration Day at Dean College's Campus Center.

Businesses have been invited by the Tri-County Partnership to talk to teens from Medway, Bellingham, Millis, Franklin, and Tri-County Regional Vocational High School.

The event is more of a networking event than a job fair, organizers say, as teens have been coached to meet potential employers with a handshake and direct eye contact. The kids were also prepped with questions to ask the employers, such as what matters most in an interview.

Students who impress employers will be asked for their "business cards," which will be entered into a drawing for movie passes.
