LLCC Hosts Career Day for High Schoolers
Lincoln Land Community College opened its campus today to all area high school sophomores and their parents, to give them a leg up on their future.
Representatives from various career fields gathered to share information with students on future career opportunities. Speakers at today's event stressed the importance of first impressions in the job application and interview process.
"I think it's really important, because looking at all these different things give me a good outlook of what I want to do in the future," student Kara Burke said. "It gives me good ideas of what to do."
"I think it really gives me an overview of what I am going to do in my field," student Evan Cornett said.
Aside from introductions to various careers, students were also given tips and tricks to be successful in the workplace.
