Local businesses, educators, and agencies brought job opportunities and job-seeking advice on March 22 to Sacramento County Office of Education students. Career Day 2006 offered students of Leo A. Palmiter Junior-Senior High School and Elinor Lincoln Hickey Junior-Senior High School the chance to meet prospective employers and learn about job-hunting techniques, as well as how to access post-secondary education.
"Career Day offers students the opportunity to see possibilities for themselves they might not have felt were possible before," said Carmen Walker, Principal of Leo A. Palmiter Jr./Sr. High School.
Participants in Career Day 2006 included:
- Sacramento Works
- U.S. Army
- Motivational Systems Company
- Chuck E. Cheese
- American River College

- SCOE LINKS program
Career Day decorations were provided by Party City.
Career Day, spearheaded by Workability/SCOE's Success Center Team, is one of several employment-focused activities being planned for students of the two schools. The Success Center, established in conjunction with SCOE's new LINKS program, provides students direct connections from school to the world of employment, job training, and college.
