CMS Career Day 2012

Caroline Middle School’s Annual Career Day

The middle school counselors, Kristin Clark, Christine Hayek and Regenia Vessels, and School Counselor Intern, Kami Denton, hosted the annual Career Day on Friday, November 16, 2012. In preparation for Career Day, all middle school students were introduced to the Virginia Education Wizard. Students took a career assessment inventory which matched their interests with prospective career choices. The inventory identified primary and secondary interests and matched students to at least three of the sixteen career clusters. The students then researched careers by considering two years of college, 4 years of college, or more than 4 years of college. Students completed a worksheet and examined careers by considering future job demands, salary, skills needed, and school courses that related to the career.
More than 45 professionals, many of them Caroline Middle School alumni, represented a wide array of career clusters, including scientific research and engineering, information technology, education, human services, hospitality and tourism, finance, marketing, government, manufacturing, agriculture, law and public safety, transportation, health sciences, arts, audio/video technology, and retail sales and services. The Career and Technical Education programs from CHS were represented by the teachers and their students. This allowed middle school students to ask questions and gain valuable knowledge about future high school course offerings.
In celebration of National Career Development Month and Career Day, students competed in the annual poetry and poster contest, “Inspiring Careers, Honoring History”. The winner of the poetry contest was seventh grader Savannah Dyer and the winner of the poster contest was eighth grader Brittney Roberts.
Caroline Middle School students commented that they enjoyed having so many professionals and high school students meet with them and share their experiences. The school counselors are confident that Career Day will have a lasting positive affect on their future career path decisions.

Students meet with professionals in the Health and Sciences field.
