Information for High School Students

This Web site is designed primarily for middle school students. Jobs and careers may be the furthest thing from their minds but you will agree it is helpful to get some idea of what's promising out there in the "real world." We want the site to be useful and attractive to middle-school kids-something interactive; something they can learn from and contribute to; something they can rely on for accurate information. And we need some help from you do make the site interesting.

Here's how you can help.

We would like high schools students who are in mentorship programs to tell middle-school kids what their mentorship is like. What have you learned? What's good about it?

We've love to have you write your own mentorship blog, so that you can tell kids about your experiences on the job. The blog would contain just basic information about you-first name, what grade you're in, what school you attend, your career goals - and then it's up to you to answer as many or as few questions as you like, or come up with your own material.

Sample questions:

  • Describe your mentorship.
  • What is the company/organization that you're mentoring with?
  • Why did you decide to do a mentorship?
  • Why did you decide to do this mentorship with this company/organization?
  • Describe what you like about the mentorship. You may choose to describe a positive experience, or several positive experiences.
  • How has the mentorship changed your view of the job and/or career?
  • What is the single most important thing you want to tell middle school students about the job that you have learned during your mentorship?

The more people who have blogs, the better. We ask that you blog as often as you like, but please post at least once every two weeks.

To get started, you need to contact us, and we'll take it from there.

Send us:

Your name
Your e-mail
And what school you attend
