Career Day is an opportunity for St. Edmund Prep students to learn about different careers and explore fields of interest. Alumni, parents and friends join us for the morning and meet with classes of students to share their experiences and advice regarding their chosen professions. Speakers will cover topics such as educational requirements, job opportunities and potential for advancement and growth. This annual event encourages students to ask questions regarding their fields of interest and think about their ambitions for the future.
What are the details of Career Day?
This year's Career Day will take place on Thursday, February 13th, 2020.
Students will attend three 40-minute presentations facilitated by guest-speakers representing various fields. Regularly scheduled academic classes will not take place during the first three periods of the day.
Please note the following:
- The day will begin with all students reporting to homeroom by 8:15am.
- Upperclassmen who may be free during first period will still report to homeroom by 8:15am, or they will be marked late/absent.
- If a student happens to miss their entire first-scheduled presentation of the day, it will be treated as a cut class. If a student misses two presentations, it will be two cut classes, etc.
- Career Day is a mandatory event; all students will participate, and attendance will be taken prior to the start of each presentation.
Hopefully, you will take the time to review the materials posted here and throughout the building so that you may record your preferences on the Career Day preference survey which will be distributed via students' SEP email on Friday, February 7th.
What careers will be represented?
17 Career fields will be represented by parents, alumni, and friends of the St. Edmund Prep Community. The full listing of the presenters and their biographies are available below.
How do I sign up for Presentations?
On Friday, February 7th, each student will receive a Career Day preference survey via their SEP email. Students will select the top five (5) presentations they would like to attend and will be scheduled to attend three (3) presentations. Students will be scheduled, to the best of our ability, according to their preferences. Students should complete the preference survey prior Homeroom on Monday, February 10th.
