Career Days

Career Days

Career Fairs will be held during Advisory each Fall for the Junior and Senior students.

Career Fairs will be held during Advisory each Spring for the Freshman and Sophomore students.

They provide the students an opportunity to learn about several career areas from people in all kinds of professions/trades.  By having speakers talk about their own training, experiences and job descriptions, we to encourage the students to analyze their own strengths and weaknesses when looking at future college courses and employment opportunities.  Some of the speakers are of course MHS alums!

Many speakers bring audio-visual aids, models, handouts and more.  We encourage speakers to be as interactive as possible.
Please contact Lisa if you would like to be a career speaker!

The coordinator for these days is Lisa Eltinge, Volunteer, Mission High School, 415-648-4374 or
