Career Connections

A Westview PTSA Program

 

Westview PTSA Career Connections is a free program to inspire and help students learn about different careers. Students in any grade are encouraged to attend these free events to meet professionals in a specific career area. The sessions begin with a panel of professionals and then break up into a round-table format where students can ask questions and find out about education, salary, advancement, career outlook, and specifics about their day-to-day jobs.

 

All Career Connections evenings will be held at Westview High School.
