New This Year: Mustang Career Chats

GMHS Career Presenters Needed

You are invited to share your Career Story with George Mason High School students as part of the upcoming Mustang Career Chats.  Students will have the opportunity to learn about different careers from the experts (That's you!) The format will encourage a comfortable conversation, rather than an official presentation. 

Interested students will be placed in small groups with one or two presenters. We need about 20 presenters in every imaginable career per session. Presenters will be asked to talk about these areas:
  • What were you interested in when you were in high school?
  • How does your career match those interests?
  • Did you go to college and where?
  • If you joined military, what has your career been like?
  • If you didn't go to college, what kind of post-high school training/certifications do you have?
  • What were the twists and turns along the way?
  • What is most satisfying about your career?
  • How would a young person get started in your field?
  • What are other opportunities in your field?
Sign up for as many dates as you are available to share your career story with students. All presentations are 9:45-10:45 a.m. (with a short orientation for all presenters at 9:30).
  • December 5, 2018 (Freshmen -We are especially in need of presenters for this one!)
  • January 30, 2019 (Juniors)
  • February 20, 2019 (Seniors)
  • April 24, 2019 (Sophomores)
If you have questions, please contact Marybeth Connelly
