A Day on the Job Event
On September 21st Ottawa High School Seniors attended A Day on the Job Event. The event focused on showcasing local opportunity for the students as they approach adulthood. Local business and government entities sat up tables and displays offering various information and conversation with students. Lake Region's table focused on Green Collared Jobs. Various jobs at different education and skill levels were displayed, giving the students an idea of the wide range of jobs that fall under the Green Collar title. Under each job, the median annual salary for that job in Kansas and the US median were posted. Several actual local green job postings were printed out for students to view what real employers are wanting out of job candidates as well as a glimpse into what benefits and salaries local companies offer. A drawing of fun, earth friendly school supplies and phone pop socket was also held at the table. While some students simply stopped by to sign up for the drawing, there was also plenty of great conversation and interaction. What a fun experience!
