The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Committee in partnership with the Wicomico County Board of Education and Salisbury University held the 7th Annual Career Day for all Wicomico County high school freshmen.
The event was held at Salisbury University on Wednesday, March 19 and included presentations from a wide variety of professions for students to learn about. Students selected four career presentations of their choice from nearly 40 different career tracks, allowing them to explore different career options.
Volunteer presenters were asked to share their experience and knowledge related to their career area including what is involved in their career, a typical day, educational requirements, tips and lessons learned.
After the event, students must write an essay about the career of their choice and the essays are judged by a panel of Young Professionals and the top three from each school are awarded prizes.
The Salisbury Young Professionals would like to thank all the presenters, sponsors and volunteers for making this event a success.
