Peterborough World of Choices

May 1, 2018
Peterborough, Ontario

Join us as we celebrate the World of Choices available to young men and women in Peterborough, Ontario.

More than 100 students in grades 10 and 11 will be invited to learn from local career mentors in our round roundtable career forum – essentially, a speed dating for careers! Throughout the morning, students circulate through 5 sessions where they meet and interact with professionals from different careers possibilities.

At each table, career mentors will do a short presentation about their job, including information about how they chose their career and what steps it took to get there. Students will be exposed to a variety of career possibilities, the training and education required and they will get a glimpse into what a typical day looks like on the job.

The goal is to have students leave this forum excited about their future, and better equipped to meet the challenges of today’s work world!

The event will help prepare students capitalize on career opportunities in emerging traditional and non-traditional fields, not only for their future, but also in our wonderful city!
