College Possible Washington gives a BIG thanks to all of the career panelists and attendees!
In March, College Possible Washington held six career panels for their high school juniors, seniors and college students. The goal of the career panels was to bring community members face-to-face with students to share their personal experiences. It was our hope that students would walk away with a greater understanding of different roles, companies and future pathways that they might wish to pursue.
If you’re interested in watching one of the sessions, you can replay any of them on YouTube.
Thank you to our Community Partnerships Team member, Kelly Buck, for organizing such wonderful events. Attendees let us know how much they enjoyed the panels by responding with comments like:
This panel was so helpful. I deal with so much anxiety figuring out what I want to major in, so it is great to hear about your journey to where you are right now.”
Thank you so much! I really need this.”
