A GUIDELINE FOR PRESENTERS

Hello volunteers!

Thank you for participating in our annual Career Day. We are excited to have you come and present to our 8th grade students. You will be presenting to our entire 8th grade, but they will be divided into 4 rotations of about 25 students each. Each rotation will be approximately 33 minutes long. Volunteers/Presenters do NOT rotate.  You will be in one room and present 4 times.  You have the choice of an AM or PM time slot.

 I have asked that volunteers focus on the following aspects. Feel free to add anything else that you would like.

  1. State your title/occupation.
  2. Tell the students about your educational background, work experience, where you got your degree, etc.
  3. Let the students know if there is anything they can be doing now to prepare themselves for your position (volunteer work, specific clubs, classes in high school, etc.).
  4. Tell the students about any advancement that you can make in your position.
  5. Tell the students about the different types of positions you can have with your degree, license, or experience.
  6. Tell the students about the positive and cool things you love about your job. This could include any activities, visuals, demonstrations, etc. If you need a laptop, projector, Internet, copies for handouts, etc. Please let me know. We will have it ready for you.
  7. Question/Answers at the end. The students have a short assignment to fill out during each session they attend.
