The Cost of College

If you’re thinking about college but a little afraid of the cost, here’s another option:  connect with an employer before you head off. Or maybe you’re thinking you’d like to go straight to work right after high school.  No problem!!

Once again, employers offering FOUR or more career-focused jobs appropriate for high school students will be doing one-on-one interviews just like colleges and you can meet these employers the same way you would schedule to meet colleges, too!

Our next employer is our own N.H. Department of Transportation interviewing students this Monday, December 17 Period C all the way into Period H.   For additional information about these great opportunities go to the Naviance homepage or see Mrs. Craft in the School Counseling Office or Mr. Cullen in the CTE Office.
