Eighth graders from Lynbrook North Middle School and Lynbrook South Middle School recently participated in an engaging career fair at Lynbrook South Middle School. Coordinated by guidance counselors Jennifer Arena from South Middle School and Alexandra Etra from North Middle School, the career fair is facilitated each year to get eighth graders to think about their futures and learn from different professionals.
Fourteen professionals presented their careers to students throughout the morning and offered words of advice for those interested in pursuing a job in their field. The eighth graders learned about careers such as K-9 police officer, teacher, forensic scientist, producer, journalist, industrial engineer, music director and more. They rotated throughout the morning to learn more about the careers on their schedules. At the conclusion of the career fair, students completed evaluations with the hope of having a better understanding of what they want to pursue in the future.
