Now joining the team of Mentors for Junior Achievement’s World of Choices event, the dynamic Rosalea Terry of the Greater Peterborough Innovation Cluster! She will be representing Women in Marketing. #MeettheMentor
More than 100 young women in Grade 10 will be invited to learn from local female career mentors in our round-table format career forum.
Throughout the morning, students circulate through five sessions where they meet and interact with women from different, pre-selected careers. At each table, career mentors will do a short presentation about their job, including information about how they chose their career and what steps (education or training) it took to get there.
Students will be exposed to a variety of career possibilities, the training and education required and they will get a glimpse into what a typical day looks like on the job. Students will leave this forum excited about their future, and better equipped to meet the challenges of today’s work world. The event will help prepare them to capitalize on career opportunities in emerging, traditional, and non-traditional fields.
