Career Day

Thanks to our extraordinary parent volunteers, 100+ speakers will share their careers with AHS students. This is a required Community activity. Students get to select four sessions to attend.

The counseling department, along with parent volunteers and members of the AHS leadership class organize career day each year. We would love to recruit parents of 9th, 10th, and 11th graders to continue organizing this annual event.

Please email us at AHSVIPS@ashland.k12.or.us if you want to get involved.

At the beginning of the day, students will check in with their 2nd Period teacher (if they do not have a 2nd period teacher they will meet in the commons). At that time, teachers will take attendance and distribute a session guide (descriptions of the sessions, locations, and times) as well as a sign-in sheet. Students will need to get a signature from the room monitor during each session. During this time, students can take time to review the sessions and plan out their day.

After students go to the 4 sessions, they will return to their 2nd period class to drop off their sign-in sheet. Teachers will do attendance for the sessions. Students will then be released to lunch.

After lunch, students will return to their 2nd period class for attendance and room assignments. Teachers will release students to their grade-level breakout activities.

Career Day Presenter Guidelines

AHS is focused on maintaining the attention and positive learning experience for the students. Some of you have presented before, and others are new to this experience. Please consider the following suggestions when tailoring your presentation:

  1. If possible we would like this to be interactive, so if you have visuals to bring or show (models, tools of trade, power point, posters, etc.). Students appreciate hands on with discussion.
  2. Please be prepared to cover the following information in your presentation:
    • education requirements or training to prepare for this career/profession
    • estimated range of income to expect in this field
    • Please have either a hand-out or other visual offering of this information
  3. Students like general information about the field highlighted by your personal path. They also want to know about day-to-day activities/work, any additional benefits, how your job fit with raising a family, off hour job requirements (on call versus regular 9-5), travel opportunities, social expectations (working alone or on a team, etc.), advancement possibilities and foreseeable changes in this career when students enter the workforce.
  4. Pace your presentation time to allow for interaction and questions along the way or at the end. Possible discussion starters: Why did these students choose your career topic? What do they hope to get out of it? …or asking a few kids for input if that works for you.
  5. Students want concrete ideas on what they can do now , while in high school, to assure success in that field and internship opportunities available now or later in college.
  6. Students like presentations that allow for questions and answers, without having any one student hijack the conversation to only their needs! Having 5 minutes to ask questions at the end and “mingle” rather than asking every question in front of the rest of the audience is also a plus.
  7. If you can offer an opportunity for students for an internship or to shadow you please let them know and have contact information available (business cards, etc).

Thank you for considering the student/staff input and for sharing your valuable time with our students!​
