Career Exploration Videos
The North Hennepin Area Chamber of Commerce - Business Education Partnership Committee has put together an initial series of 10 minute videos focusing on a variety of career fields.
The intent of the video project is to provide students and school career specialists with immediate access to videos that provide valuable information on a number of careers.
The four initial career fields that were explored include engineering, journalism, small business, and law enforcement. Two professionals in each field were interviewed and in their first video they discussed the educational and related experiences that readied them for their careers. The second video in each field then goes into the career experiences that the professionals faced and grew from once in their chosen field. The videos were taped at Park Center High School in Brooklyn Park, MN between April 17th and May 29th, 2014.
Here is a list of the featured career fields and the professionals that so generously gave of their time for this project.
