Dozens of guest speakers spent last Wednesday at Plymouth Community School and the Weidner School of Inquiry to speak about their chosen line of work with the freshmen class for Career Day. (There are 325 students in the freshman class.)
Students could attend three separate career information sessions based on their chosen career pathway. Career pathways focused on: STEM/Transportation/Manufacturing, Agriculture, Architecture and Construction, Information Technology, Education and Training, Public Safety, Business and Marketing, Hospitality and Human Services and Arts, AV Technology and Communication.
They said they work out of cubicles in a relaxed environment where they can listen to music at times when they are working. Zacarias admitted the line of work is stressful at times especially when he is on a tight deadline and he is missing elements he needs to create a graphic design.
Brad Serf and Art Jacobs with Gibson Insurance were also among the dozens of Career Day guest speakers!
