Cambell Geibel ‘21: Excitement filled the gym of Romeo High School on Wednesday, November 14 as the annual Career Day took place. On that eventful day, booths lined the gym and students filled the walkways as they browsed each station. At each table, professionals from all different fields of work spoke and handed out literature promoting their respective career fields. Every career imaginable represented; from doctors, to teachers, and even barbers; students saw a wide variety of jobs.
Typically a stressful idea, Career Day helps to ease the tension students feel when choosing their future occupation. This activity creates a perfect opportunity for students to speak one on one and ask questions to professionals in the line of work that interests them. Hearing the perspectives and advice given by these hard working adults, helps students choose which career looks right for them.
“When I was younger we didn’t have these kind of things, and I think it would have helped me a lot,” Mary Sue Enciso, a representative at the teacher booth, said. “Seeing all of the different jobs and being able to communicate with people who actually have them, will be super helpful for students struggling with what to do with their future”.
The students of Romeo High School appreciate the chance to see all of the endless occupational possibilities the future holds for them. The kids benefit from meeting with the professionals so dedicated in our community to help them make the right choice in their careers.
