Career Day

Standard

Just a quick note to let you all know I will be speaking at the 2007 Career Day at Evans High School – in Evans, Georgia – on Wednesday, February 7th. I’ll be speaking to three classes about the kind of work that I do. To be honest, it’s a little intimidating. Some kids’ professional future might be impacted by what I might say. Thanks again to Mrs. April Nunnallee for inviting me. (It’s hard to believe we worked together over 6 years ago…and now she’s a teacher!)

Regardless, it’ll be fun to get out of the office for the morning. I’ll post about the experience on Wednesday afternoon. I really need to do more stuff like this.

If you were a student, what might you want to learn from someone coming in for Career Day?

    I sat on a panel for an ASU Career Spotlight for English/Communication majors a few months back. It was good–not only did I get to help the college kids understand their career options more fully, but I realized that I really enjoy my job.

    Have fun with it, Chris!

  2. presentation to the <abbr title=”Georgia Education Advancement Council”>GEAC</abbr> Summer Conference at Augusta State back in June ’06, I had little time to prepare… and wasn’t 100% comfortable with the subject matter.

    It ended up going really well. I had planned initially on just making the presentation, and then taking questions… But it ended up being more free-form. Attendees asked questions pretty often, and it helped extend my talk beyond the hour I was allotted. I think I will take the same approach with these presentations…

  4. Very cool… I am looking forward to it… Putting together a presentation as we speak that I hope will be helpful to the students.

  5. Hmm, just realized while making this comment I never talked about that presentation here on the site back in June – you can read it here. Edited by CH, 2:03PM, 2/7/2007
