CareerX
Last week, GWHS BusinessConnect took 26 students for a CareerX Job Exploration event with United Airlines at Denver International Airport. During this incredibly engaging event, students participated in problem solving scenarios involving operations, a tour of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner bound for Tokyo, and a Question and Answer session with airline operations. We definitely look forward to future collaboration with United Airlines.

CareerCoach
Last week was also the first session back for our CareerCoach Mentors from Anschutz Medical Campus. Students and their mentors reengaged after the long break, discussing Individual Career and Academic Plans (ICAP), as well as continuing to work on their projects for presentation in May. We are excited to announce that GWHS CareerCoach participants will also be going on three campus visits to learn more about education and careers in the Life Sciences. We will be visiting the UCD Biomed Campus, CCD Health Campus at Lowry, and Anschutz Medical Campus throughout the semester.

CareerResidency
In a one of its kind experience, DPS has announced that DPS CareerConnect will be launching the CareerResidency in Fall of 2017. Students will have the opportunity to earn money, industry credentials, college credit, and work experiences through the CareerResidency.
