What: On Wednesday, October 5th, Leyden will host Career Prep with UPS. This is a chance for students to learn about: how to get hired, how to keep a job, and leadership through our panel discussions, period 1-3. Each period has a different theme, so even if a student is in multiple classes that participate, they will get something new out of each period. For students to really engage, we ask that the Juniors and Seniors turn in a resume to you. These students will have the opportunity to conduct a mock interview!
Why: This day highlights our careers areas, and gives students a dry run at interviewing and resume writing. The idea is that when the next interview really matters he/she will be prepared.
