The Blind Brook High School Congress sponsored its third annual Career Fair for students in grades 9-12. Members of the community were invited to participate in the Career Fair by sharing firsthand knowledge about their professions with students. Speakers provided attendees with information about the educational requirements to get into their field, a peek at a typical day and insight into the future outlook of their field.
Presenters represented a broad range of careers, including accounting, advertising, investment management, engineering, teaching, package design and medicine, among others. Students were able to attend two sessions of their choice.
“The goal of the Career Fair is to expose students to a wide range of occupations as they start to think about their future fields of study and possible career options,” said Brian Becker, a sophomore member of Congress and chairman of the Career Fair Committee.
Congress is composed of students, faculty, parents, administrators, school board members and school-related personnel.
