Career Connections Scouting Your Future connects professionals with LFHS students through an easy, virtual meeting platform. Professionals will discuss their career paths, a typical day, and answer student questions.
Did you know:
- The New York Times reports there will be 3.5 million open cybersecurity jobs across the globe in 2021.
- Employment of substance abuse, behavioral disorder, and mental health counselors is projected to grow 23 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations (Bureau of Labor Statistics).
- According to LinkedIn, digital marketing is the most in-demand career in 2021.
- Finance offers a fast-paced, continuously challenging career. The global balance of business, finance, and economics shifts every day, which is what makes it so fast-paced, and varied.
Scouting Your Future is on Thursday, October 21 and Friday, October 22 and will offer 8 panel discussions that cover the jobs listed above, as well as many more trending careers, over Google Meets. We have an amazing group of distinguished professionals representing seven different professional areas, including healthcare, law, human resources, mental health, media and marketing, cyber security, and finance. Our final panel is "Scouts 10 Years Out", which focuses on alumni who have all graduated from LFHS within the past 10 years.
The "Scouts 10 Years Out" panel will consist of a variety of alumni who have experience in the military service, going straight into the job market after undergrad, or individuals who have or are working to complete a masters program right away. We are excited to showcase the different steps alumni are currently taking to get to their career goals. This will be an "in progress" look at professionals who can easily relate to what our students are thinking about pursuing and to offer insight into how students can take the next step into life after LFHS.
