Career Exploration has taken on a new look!
The Rockwood Partners in Education (PIE) Career Exploration program provides students with the opportunity to explore career areas of interest through Career Chats with industry professionals!
This opportunity is open to all Rockwood students in grades 9-12. Future career chats will be scheduled on non-instructional days to make the conversations open to more students. Students are encouraged to submit questions in advance or to ask live during the Zoom session.
Everybody Wins! Students benefit from the Career Chats as they gain insight into their career interests while also earning A+ credit. Community Business Partners are excited to participate since it offers the opportunity to personally expand a student’s awareness while establishing their organization's image among students and the community.
Not sure what career interests you? We encourage students to attend as many Career Chats as desired. New programs will be added weekly. Students can register to participate in the following upcoming sessions:
