OHS freshmen class attends Career Jam

The Oswego High School freshmen class recently got to attend the seventh annual Career Jam, presented by The WorkPlace, at the Watertown Municipal Arena, Agricultural Hall and surrounding grounds. The hands-on career exploration event is designed to highlight local careers.

The focus of the event is to introduce students to the 16 National Career Clusters. Examples of the Career Clusters include Hospitality and Tourism, Health Sciences, Manufacturing and Information Technology. The aim is to allow students to get a feel for what they want to do in high school, and potentially as a career once they finish their education.

Once students arrived, they received “Career Hunt Cards,” which allowed them to record the businesses they visited within the different booths of the clusters. Many of the booths had activities and demonstrations that provided an educational opportunity for the students to witness what goes into various occupations.

“This unique hands-on event let’s our students get an inside look at the many different fields that are in attendance,” said OHS Assistant Principal Tara Clark. “It’s never too early to empower our students from all backgrounds and abilities to imagine their future!”
