Career Day - East Antigonish Education Centre/Academy

Nov 15, 2018 9:00 AM - 1:30 PM

October 25, 2018




I am the School Counsellor at East Antigonish Education Centre/Academy and, together with our new Student-Focused Career Practitioner, Michelle Furlong, we would like to invite you to participate in Career Day at our school on Thursday, November 15th, 2018.


We are planning for a full day of workshops and information booths at break time. If you are able to participate in a part of this day, please indicate below which time(s) work best for you and your level of participation as described below.


  1. Information session (30 minutes-the details of your day-to-day work, education and training required and time for question/answer)-the format is up to you and it does not have to be a formal presentation (unless you prefer it to be!)
  2. Workshop-how to write a resume, cover letter, interview skills, or practical skills demonstration for skills required at your workplace (carpentry/cooking/computers are available for these sessions)-These sessions would be longer, approximately 1 hour, to allow for student experience;
  3. Information booth: a table set up in the performing arts room during break (10:30-10:45am) or lunch (12-12:30) (please check off what time works best)


What time of day works best for you?
