How To Plan Your Visit
Note to Chaperones
Chaperones facilitate their students' successful experience on the Pennsylvania College of Technology campus. In order to do this, you must stay with your students at all times! This might sound tough, but we have found over the years that when chaperones "know the ropes," so to speak, and follow these guidelines, their students have a great experience. Wear comfortable shoes, because you will be walking-a lot! Dress for the weather-Career Day will take place rain or shine.
It's All About Careers
Career Day is all about assisting your students in exploring careers. If you feel comfortable, talk to your students about your own career path. Students like to hear about a real-life career story. At Penn College, you will hear a lot about many exciting technical careers. Students most often like to know about salaries and job availability. How much will I make? How likely am I to get into a career? If you are in the classroom with students, prepare your students by leading them in the Career Scavenger Hunt activity before Career Day, where they can explore careers on the Internet. This will get your students thinking about careers.
