Calaveras Hills and Milpitas Adult Education Students Treated to Relevant and Engaging Career Pathways Conference in November
By Carl Stice
On November 7, students from Calaveras Hills High School and the Adult Education program were treated to a dynamic and engaging Map Your Future (MYF) career pathways conference, a service of Silicon Valley Career Pathways. Map Your Future is a collection of programs and services intended to provide students with the resources to explore, identify, and develop academic and career options. They offer services for students interested in earning a college degree or certificate, or in transferring to a four-year college. They also assist students with resume writing, preparing for interviews, and job search. Key partners from Silicon Valley Career Pathways and San Jose City College campus in Milpitas helped organize and provide this valuable opportunity.
Calaveras Hills High School and Milpitas Adult Education students received information and career guidance from five panel members, who shared their professional and personal journeys that led them to where they are today as innovators in their respective fields. A Q&A session was followed by a pizza lunch with a lot of mingling. After lunch, attendees split up into five breakout sessions focused on Medical Science, Engineering, Public Services, Advanced Manufacturing, and Information Communication Technology. This allowed students to drill deeper into the career fields that most attracted them.
