Presentation dates are scheduled for November 14 & 15, 2012 (12:45—3:00 PM). These are early dismissal dates. You will be assigned an appointment within this time frame. Please keep this time frame open until you receive your scheduled time slot.
We will be offering an opportunity to present your graduation project in the middle of September. If you present early, you will not have to be available on the afternoons of November 14 & 15. Please check back for the dates and information on how to sign up. Announcements will also be made in school.
Use the following questions/suggestions to prepare for your presentations next week.
- What is your career goal? Identify some of the qualities of employees who are successful in this area? What specific skills and abilities must you have? Do you feel like you have these skills or still need to develop them?
- Describe any problems you encountered as you worked on your Graduation Project? Explain how you solved these problems.
- Talk about a time that you had to take initiative in your high school career. How will this skill help you with your plans for life after high school?
- Employers want team players. Talk about a time you had to work in a group and describe the role you played.
- Talk about the goals you had for yourself in ninth grade and compare them to the goals you have now. How did you arrive at your current goals?
- What information do you still need to acquire in order to meet your post-secondary goals? List a few places you could go to find this information.
- What classes did you take during your high school career that best prepared you for life after high school?
