First Graduate middle school students spent Career Day learning about how The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Accenture, and Gap, Inc. do their work and the paths their talent took to be in their chosen careers.
They learned about college majors, professional tracks, and worked on projects that showcased a part of each organization’s business. The goals for Career Day were:
- To expose college-bound middle school students to new career paths and the skills needed to be successful
- Share a glimpse into the company’s professional life/culture/team and the work that each person does
- Expand our students career aspirations and remind them about the power of a college degree
