|My high school has a regularly scheduled "Career Day" where juniors and seniors get to investigate some of their areas of interest for future study and or employment. The day involves meeting with graduates of the high school who work in these areas. When I was attending high school, we did not have anything like this, and I think it would have been helpful, so I have participated in every career day that they have had. Since I work in the field of computers, I have created a handout titled Things to think about if you are interested in a Computer Career.|
