Career day offers an opportunity for students here to contemplate what they want to do after they graduate from college. BCHS career day offers chances to hear professionals from areas including science, media, politics, and a variety of other occupations. This exposes students to careers that they did not know existed or thought was possible to achieve.

Nearly 30 presenters from different fields of study volunteered to speak to the students in three 25-minute sessions.  Earlier this month, students signed up to listen to three different speakers of their interest.

“I always wanted to be a pilot, but I thought it was impossible to get a job at one of the bigger airlines. But I learned today that pilots are in high demand, so I think I will pursue that now,” said Brian Brothers, senior.

For some of the underclassmen, this is sometimes their first experience with exploring the job market. This exposes them to possible areas of study and colleges to attend after they graduate.

“The physical therapy session was so interesting. It is too early to decide what I want to do when I grow up because I am only a freshman, but it is definitely something that interests me,” said Will Kellison.

However students used the day, it has been beneficial for opening their minds to possibilities in their futures.

“I am very happy we had this day because it kind of changed my whole approach on the re

st of the day,” said Brothers. by Brooks Hepp
