Greencastle-Antrim High School held a Career Day Expo for members of its junior class Thursday, April 10. The high school counseling team planned the expo, one of the educational opportunities for Greencastle-Antrim High School students to explore various career fields and occupations. During the morning event all juniors were scheduled for two 20-minute appointments with representatives from various occupations. In all, 200 students met with 60 professionals from 42 different career fields.

Each student had an opportunity to ask the professionals questions about their careers and to share their resumes with the representatives. The students were also asked interview-type questions during their sessions to better understand their perspective of the particular career fields. The students received valuable feedback regarding their resumes and future education plans through the dialog with the career representatives.

Greencastle-Antrim High School appreciates the community support from area businesses that send representatives to events such as Career Day.
