Career Conversations

  • Career Conversations is a monthly guest speaker panel series offered at high schools across Durham Public Schools. Each month covers a different set of industry sectors aligned with the NC Career Clusters. The purpose of the panels is to expose students to a variety of careers and industries, provide information about the skills and personal qualities most desired by employers, and help students navigate the often complex pathway to career success.

    Industry professionals wishing to serve as panelists may sign up on our Career Conversations registration site.
