“We will go over the businesses coming and have students target professionals they would like to speak with. Then students will go through soft skills stations led by our Mentors from the high school,” said Noyd.
Noyd is also working with juniors and seniors in the High School to prepare them for the career night.
“Students will learn about what professionals are coming and what current high school openings they have. I will also be going into classrooms to work with students on developing their resumes to have in hand for the event,” said Noyd.
Family members as well as students will be able to explore the job openings.
“We are excited for this opportunity for members of our community. Students have the opportunity to not only set up potential employment, but meet with professionals and make connections,” said Noyd.
This event is run in conjunction with the District’s Future Ready Knights program, which provides students with opportunities to explore seven career fields of interest: Agriculture, Business/Finance, Computer Science, Education, Engineering, Health Care and Trades.
“The goal of our Future Ready Knights program is not only to prepare students for a range of 21st-century careers, but also show them how the opportunity to pursue those careers exist right here in Broome County. What better way than to show them and their families the jobs available right now in our area,” said Dr. Jason Andrews, Superintendent of the Windsor Central School District.
Through partnerships developed with local employers, students will have the ability to learn about career options, tour local businesses, receive hands-on training and begin to build their own professional network.
