Students explore options at Career Day events

More than 100 high school students from across the Twin Cities participated in a program from BestPrep called Classroom Plus. The program offers Career Day events, which bring students into major local corporations where they are exposed to a variety of career fields and gain an awareness of professional skill building. During each Classroom Plus Career Day, students visit stations where they are able to ask questions of professionals representing areas such as marketing, sales, human resources and law. The rotations at each station last approximately 20 minutes and give students a chance to experience the business world firsthand by asking questions about topics such as schooling and training required, as well as salary range expectations. At the conclusion of the program students share their perceptions of what they think it would take to be successful in each of those career. Students from Lakeville North and Burnsville high schools attended a Dec. 14 program hosted by U.S. Bank in Richfield. – Photos submitted
