Career Expo

Canastota High School hosted a Career Expo on May 24 to expose students to different career pathways and allow them to practice critical job skills with local employers.

Representatives from local businesses, colleges, government and community agencies, and school programs set up displays in the Media Center and were available to answer students’ questions about training programs, employment preparation and career opportunities in the field.

Community members also volunteered to hold mock job interviews with students to help them practice answering questions appropriately and concisely when meeting with an actual employer.

Coordinator of Innovative Learning, Liz Garofalo, organized the event, primarily aimed at CTE students. The Expo built on the well-established Mock Interview Day that the JSHS Business Department ran for many years, inviting community leaders in to help provide an interview experience for students.
