Career Expo

Career Expo 2018

Wednesday, January 17th 8:30 - 11:30 AM

The purpose of the Career Expo is to introduce our 8th grade students to a wide variety of career and employment possibilities available to them prior to their ninth grade endorsement and course selection deadline in January.

During this event, you will conduct a short presentation that will tell the students about who you are and what you do, and what education and/or training you took in order to be where you are today. I encourage you to bring a display of some sort, or “prop/s,” related to your job, the purpose of which will grab the students’ attention and engage them in an interactive dialogue with you after your presentation. You may distribute flyers, brochures, business cards, etc. This is a great opportunity to advertise! After your introduction and job description, students will be able to ask more in depth questions and then they will rotate to other presenters in your location. The school does have WIFI but Principal Nava has recommended that the presentations be saved on personal storage devices and played on your laptop.

To expedite admission to our school on the day of the Career Expo, Mr. Nava has requested that each presenter contact the school by Monday, January 15th and provide the school with your name, date of birth and driver's license number so that the visitor tags may be printed out in advance for you. The phone number in (832) 223-4400.

You may park in front of Antoinette Reading Junior High School. The school building will be open at 7:30. Please note that the traffic into the Junior High is very heavy. Once you arrive, there will be greeters at the school entrance to welcome you and assist you with setup and and show you to the LGI (Large Group Instruction) room for your continental breakfast prior to the Career Expo.

If you would like to participate or have any questions, please contact Sheila​ ​Ivory​ or Sarah​ ​Garza​
