PLACERVILLE, California (InEDC) Dec 22, 2022 — Education has such a range of responsibilities, and one such is aiding students in pursuing a career field to not only be productive as an adult, but to be happy and satisfied. El Dorado County Office of Education (EDCOE) Charter College and Career Prep (CCP) held Career Day on November 9th for the entire student body. Students had the opportunity to participate in active career informational workshops with a wide range of community industry leaders presenting from El Dorado County and even Greater Sacramento/Bay Area.
Sharon Shipley, CCP Teacher and Event Organizer shares her thoughts on the impact of hosting a Career Day. “Giving our students the opportunity to hear from a variety of professionals from multiple vocations is something very important to our school. The day was designed to allow students to explore viable options for their future as many of them want to start a career or go to community college immediately following high school. We see the greatest impact when our students can connect with people who have experience and find that the connections within the community build the esteem of our students. This was our first year hosting this event, and we look forward to expanding it in the future to give students even more exposure to potential careers.”
Students were able to participate in presentation workshops of Culinary, Folsom Lake College, Golden Sierra Job Training, Military, Real Estate, and ROP (regional occupational programs) giving real insights on background to enter field, highlights, challenges, salary ranges, growth opportunities, and more. The job market and economy has been ever changing the last couple years, and CCP has had the opportunity to continue to serve all students to be successful in future career endeavors. CCP is excited to continue to offer Career Day and help form the future career leaders from our present-day high school students.
