Sachem high school students recently explored an eclectic assortment of future opportunities during the second annual Internship and Career Connection hosted at Sachem High School North.
The expansive event featured 28 local businesses and organizations that provided junior and senior students with information on future career and internship opportunities. The long list of groups who participated in the event included the New York Jets, Sachem Public Library, Nichols College, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, Seeds of Achievement, the Boy Scouts of America, Splish Splash, RE/MAX Real Estate, Techworks, Civil Air Patrol, the United States Marine Corps, Long Island Community Hospital, the United States Army, RG Financial Investment Solutions, the United States Navy, Ronald McDonald House, Bob’s Stores, National Tax and Financial Services, New York City Police Department, American Pools, Keiser University, RFC Fence, Suffolk County Police Department, Accucare Health, the National Guard, First National Bank, FDNY and the Guitar Guy.
During the event, which was organized by the Sachem Business Department, hundreds of students conversed with business representatives to further their knowledge in their areas of interest. Assisting with the daylong event were a group of Sachem High School North business students, who arranged tables and escorted the representatives to the gymnasium.
Once the event had concluded, business teacher William Ward reflected on how it impacted the students. "The beautiful thing about having success as a business teacher and creating an event with students, colleagues and professionals is that the impact, like waves, continues to manifest and pay dividends further than the eye can see."
