CareerConnect Round Up – November 15, 2017

CareerLaunch Internship Update
Last week, GWHS CareerConnect was pleased to host parents and students for a showcase highlighting student internships from Summer 2017. It was a great opportunity for Interns to share their experiences and college and career goals to an interested audience. Our next CareerLaunch informational event will be held in late January or early February. If you missed the showcase, but are interested in learning about CareerLaunch Internships, please email Gideon Geisel at gideon_geisel@dpsk12.org.

MedConnect
Intro to Health Career students received a surprise visit on Monday from the Denver Police Department Crime Lab. During the demonstration, students learned about the many possible careers in forensic science, and practiced swabbing for DNA and dusting for finger prints. This was an especially exciting opportunity for the several MedConnect students interested in pursuing forensic science as a career.

BusinessConnect
Earlier this week, BusinessConnect 9th graders visited First Bank Headquarters to learn about banking operations and company culture. During this CareerX event, our First Bank hosts introduced students to elements of retail banking, the importance of building credit, and what an innovative and technological workplace feels like. Our students received another example of what strong industry engagement can do for them in the long run, and many left the visit asking how they could get an internship at such a great company!

Finally, parents and industry partners are invited to BusinessConnect Principles of Business Student Presentations on Monday, December 4th. Students are researching businesses and creating business profiles. Please read more and RSVP HERE to be an important part of creating an authentic audience. There are 3 time slots available.
