On Friday, March 10, Arthur L. Johnson’s Guidance Department hosted Career Day. More than 50 professionals hosted tables in the gymnasium while students in grades nine through twelve were able to ask questions and gather information. Among the participants were representatives from the fields of pharmacy, electrical engineering, chemistry, public safety, cosmetology, physical therapy, hospitality, and media. The event also included many ALJ alumni who were delighted to share their career pathways at their former school.

Students came equipped with a list of attendants and recommended questions to ask. Those 16 and older were especially encouraged to inquire about summer internship and/or job opportunities as a number of the organizations represented are local. Many of the participants brought props and giveaways for students. Tables were grouped together by industry: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), Law/Public Safety, Health/Human Services, Business, Trades/Personal Services, and Creative/Media. ALJ offers an internship program for seniors and several contacts were made for this program through the Career Fair.
