Career Representative Feedback

  • 49% Figuring out what career they were interested in

  • 43% learning about career they did not know about

  • 34% learning about day to day life of career

  • We received verbal, email and survey feedback from the Career Representatives. They provided some insights on improvements. However, some of the most valuable assistance we received from participants was additional contacts and programs that were available to students. Here are some:

  • Las Vegas Review editor informed us of their operating press (the only one in NV) and that they provided school tours.

  • Over half participants offered to come as a guest speaker

  • National Guard offers a 90 min workshop on “Life after high school”

Student Comments 

I talked extensively with Professor Proga from UNLV and learned a significant amount of information about the gases and plasmas in accretion disks surrounding black holes.

I would thank the career rep at the pharmacy and National Guard booths. They both gave me more options and opened my mind to more stuff I would like to do.
