‘Career Speed Dating’ session set up for students and their parents

Mark Isfeld Secondary School, Tuesday March 10, 7p.m.

  • Feb. 24, 2015 2:00 p.m.

Studies show that parents are the number-one source for career guidance. But where will you get the information to share with your child? Where do you begin?

To help you and your child, the School District 71 Career Department would like to offer you an interactive evening of ‘Career Speed Dating’ on Tuesday March 10 at

Mark Isfeld Secondary School.

The evening is open for parents, and students in Grades 8 to 11.

You will be encouraged to move around to three different career areas and hear from someone in that field, about what they do, what schooling is required and other relevant information about their career.  There will also be an opportunity to ask them questions you would like answered.

Careers we will be presenting will be from the following areas: business, health and human service, trades and technology, science and applied science, tourism, hospitality and foods, fitness and recreation, fine arts, design and media.

At this event we will be sharing information about our very popular dual credit and ACE-IT programs. We have invited a few students, who are attending dual credit courses such as fine arts, psychology and English at NIC while still in Grade 12 to join us and to share their experiences with you. As well, we will have students who are involved in ACE-IT auto service technician, carpentry, welding, cook, plumbing and electrical programs.

Our Work Experience co-ordinators will also be available to answer any questions and to provide you with information on the services they can offer your child.
