Wednesday was our Careers Day for Upper Secondary students at MEFIS Izmir. Every year we invite specialists from different fields to talk to students about their training and professions. Our guest speakers talked about their career choices, the decision and preparation process, the challenges faced and changes they have made along the way. They inspired students to think about different career paths and shared a taste of what it is like to work in the medical field, being an engineer consultant, teaching, and working for the police as an inspector.
Whether your child knows exactly what they want to do when they finish school, is undecided between a couple of areas or has no idea where to start, encourage him/her to research both broad and specific careers. Being in contact with professionals that can talk about the everyday life of a profession and how to reach it can be extremely helpful in making informed decisions. It is also important to remember that there are several ways to gain experience and be successful. As all our guest speakers highlighted, loving what you do makes it all worth it!
P.S. - Due to the cancellation of classes on Monday, April 17th, please note that the Lower Secondary PSHE assembly about puberty has been rescheduled to May 15th. If you haven’t already done so, please make sure to submit your consent form for your child to participate.
