7th Grade Career Expo at JPJ

The entire 7th grade went to the John Paul Jones arena on Wednesday to take part in the career expo.  All of the exhibitors did a phenomenal job of developing interactive initiatives that the students could participate in to learn what types of work they do in their field.  After getting to talk to all the exhibitors the students went to a presentation from employees at Lexis Nexis and current High School students.  The presenters from Lexis Nexis talked about work-place readiness and Albemarle what students should be working on now to make them more desirable candidates from jobs when the time comes.  They facilitated a couple of activities that they do with their employees to help with team building and communication skills.  The high school students spoke about their high school experience and what the transition was like for them going from middle school to high school.   Overall everyone had a great time.

Here is a video of just some of the exhibition booths.
