Our hope is to expose students to occupations and opportunities that will enable them to make more informed choices about college majors and career paths. Parents and businesses can help in this endeavor by joining us in one of the opportunities below.
The Senior Internship Program provides closure to the academic experience at Weston High School. Seniors are enrolled in a preparatory course in January that includes interest inventories, aptitude surveys, resume writing, interviewing skills, and job readiness skills. During the last three weeks in May, seniors work six hours per day in a career field in which they have expressed an interest. The senior internship is unpaid. Mentors assign students to assist with daily tasks or to work on a specific project. This internship gives students the opportunity to acquire in-depth knowledge about a specific occupation and the education and/or training requirements involved. It gives you the opportunity to observe and/or train students who may fill your summer or future employment needs.

Employers offer students the opportunity to gain career related experiences by providing after-school, weekend, and/or summer work opportunities. These positions may be either paid or unpaid and allow students more time to immerse themselves in a particular career.
Every two years a Career Day is held at the high school. Over 150 speakers are recruited from a wide range of occupations to speak to small groups of interested students. Sessions are 45 minutes long and speakers usually volunteer for one or two sessions. Topics include your own personal career path, a description of what you do, an overview of the career, salary range, education or training required and the future of the career as it is impacted by changes in technology and the global economy. You can help by being a speaker at the next career day.
