“College2Career Day is all about helping students make a connection between their education and a future career path,” said Audrey Green, associate vice president of academic affairs. “In order to make the best possible decision about their future, students and parents should both be fully informed about the type of training and education associated with a particular career choice.”
Faculty members, representatives from various academic and career technical education (CTE) programs and industry professionals will be on hand to answer questions and help students explore careers that a college education can help prepare them for.
Attendees looking to get a jumpstart on the process of becoming a COC student will also be able to attend one of several information workshops throughout the day.
More than 20 college departments are scheduled to participate, including: athletic training, welding, land surveying, computer networking, electronic systems, emergency medical technician, fire technology, culinary arts, water systems technology, photography, animation, and paralegal.
College2Career Day will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, in the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center, located on the college’s Valencia campus (University Center Drive entrance).
