Thank you for your career presentations over the years!



Since 2008, our team has worked on bringing in presenters to speak to our students about their respective careers. Our presenter's careers range from Engineering, to Game development, to Business Marketting, to Entreprenership. Our hope is that one of the presenters will resonate with one of more of our students as they begin thinking about their own careers.

"I enjoyed when Robert Mostyn came into to talk about developing his own game. He talked about how he started from scratch and started moving up levels." ~ Hassan A. "I like that she (Destini K. Bowman) gave us an activity to do. She let us interact with her presentation." ~ Alissa R. "Most of the stuff that Mr. Greg talked about was about future technology. This showed the potential that we have as we head into our careers." ~ Sheyranna C. "RIT Center for imaging science students came into speak with us about opportunities. They introduced me to an internship which I was able to apply for and got accepted to." ~ Aidan S. "Marine came in to talk to our team about architectural engineering and work that she did on a project for a building at RIT" ~ Twanda D. Two years later he still remembers Steve Hoover from Xerox who came in to talk about the different engineering careers ~ Leo S. "Twanda Christensen talked about how much she loved marketing and design, I remember where I was sitting when she was talking about marketing and design " ~ Twanda D. "I remember when Destini said that she had to do a lot of research and she was moving around constantly learning new things. However, it never stopped her from trying to move up and accept opportunities and new challenges." ~ Jailynn C. "I enjoyed when Robert Mostyn came in to talk about video games because I spend most of my free time playing video games, so I enjoyed seeing how they were made" ~ Nick M. "I remember that we had just finished brainstorming for the new game, so our minds were full of innovation and problem-solving. Knowing this feeling, Mr. Kacprzynski showed us how he uses a similar energy every day at work to solve problems on a larger scale. This caught my attention because it exemplified the tangible applications of our work! " ~ Karenna T. "Steve Hoover: It was exciting to meet someone who helps to facilitate this support and who showed us the possibilities of technology management and organization. It allowed me to understand the breadth of engineering careers" ~ Karenna T. "Greg spoke not only about technology but about the challenges of being a leader as an introvert. I found this to be inspiring and informative because I now have a better understanding of leadership in a real-world situation." ~ Ellie A.
