Career Day FAQs for Schools

Does a high school career day program have to be during school time?

It is not mandatory, but career day events are far more successful during school hours.
In our experience attendance is significantly reduced when the events happen in the evening or on a weekend. Let us tell you more.

How do you determine the cost to produce the event?

We meticulously tailor career day events to suit the unique needs of each school. Our meticulous planning process takes into account various factors such as student surveys, scheduling logistics for both students and speakers, speaker recruitment, school size considerations, and the level of staff assistance required. We are dedicated to providing you with a plethora of innovative cost-saving strategies and expert guidance on securing sponsorship to ensure the success of your event.

A student-centric career day initiative serves as a bridge between academic learning and practical application, empowering students to envision and prepare for their professional journey ahead. Moreover, the institution stands to gain valuable partnership opportunities within the local business community, fostering mutually beneficial relationships.

How many school employees are needed to staff a career day event?
