Career Fair Connects Sophomores with CCHS Alumni and Friends

Career Fair Connects Sophomores with CCHS Alumni and Friends

Several Central Catholic alumni and friends recently visited campus to speak with over 300 sophomores about future career options ranging from art photography to video game design and several interesting fields in between.

Groups of students rotated through each speaker’s station as they spoke about what a typical workday consists of, career trends for the field, salary range, training and education requirements, and which high school classes would pertain to that specific career. Students took advantage of the opportunity to ask questions, learning as much as possible about each field.
