Dressed for success and eager to learn about careers, 180 juniors took part in Mineola High School’s fourth annual Career Day. Designed as roundtable discussions, professionals from more than 50 organizations spoke with the students about their career paths. Among the presenters were seven Mineola High School alumni, as well as many professionals from the community. The event served to bridge the gap between the classroom and the workforce. By speaking with professionals, students gained knowledge they may not have otherwise obtained from traditional career resources.
