November 1, 2021 - Throughout the month of November, DPS celebrates National Career Development Month with a series of activities allowing students to explore "all things career".
Each school will publicize events, create presentations and schedule classroom visits to expose students to career options. Week 1 spotlights the DPS Virtual Career Expo and career tips around job interviews, professional skills, how to research a career, and more. Week 2 highlights CTE Pathways available at each school while Week 3 exposes students to career opportunities within the military. Finally, Week 4 encourages students to sign up for the NCDA Poetry Contest.
We also pay special tribute to the hard work, commitment and many achievements of our Career Development Coordinators across the district:
Sheena Brooks - Riverside High School
Antoinette Daye - Jordan High School
Michelle Evans - School for Creative Studies & Holton/Performance Learning Center
Jewel Jeffreys - New Tech High School
Maria Johnson - Durham School of Arts
Sharon Johnson - Northern High School

Our Career Development Coordinators will be honored on November 17th through a luncheon sponsored by BridgePoint General Contracting, Duke Office of Durham & Community Affairs, GoTriangle, and Triangle Ecycling.
