Imagine the opportunity to try on a career before you enter the workforce.
Wouldn’t it be great to know what drives that profession and be able to decide if it would be a good fit for you? The Career Mentorship Program helps students do exactly this – try on a career! Students are able to develop an understanding of how their knowledge from textbooks and experience in the classroom can translate to the responsibilities in the workplace.
This program prepares students to become the community’s future leaders as they apply the 21st Century Skills needed in today’s competitive colleges, universities, and workforce. Each year, hundreds of students leave Hilliard City Schools upon graduation eager and willing to take the next step in pursuing their passions. But what are these interests, and how do our students discover them?
Hilliard City Schools offers a semester program to college bound juniors and seniors from Hilliard Bradley, Hilliard Darby, and Hilliard Davidson High Schools. This program provides activities involving identifying strengths and interests, career exploration, leadership development, problem-solving, time management, and technology instruction while being sensitive to the lifelong needs and goals of students. Authentic hands-on learning is provided through a non-paid internship with professionals in Columbus area organizations such as hospitals, laboratories, businesses, and schools. Students participate in classroom activities to enhance their communication skills, develop résumés, practice interviewing, write business letters, construct a portfolio, and develop a final presentation.
