Career Awareness Day

Schools and Libraries

December 13, 2013

Lindell School in Long Beach held its annual Career Awareness Days, inviting local professionals to speak with students about their careers. Among the presenters were a construction manager, a social worker who is also a flamenco dancer, two sports announcers, a massage therapist, a physical therapist who teaches self-defense, a surf instructor and a CPA.

Presenters shared information about their careers, but they also shared nuggets of wisdom about achieving success in any profession, such as: Believe in yourself and be open to new things; Never stop learning; School work and work habits are the building blocks of your future; Practice teamwork; Keep your dreams alive; Find what moves you; Everyone has gifts and talents to share; Communicate your inner light; and Serving others brings joy.
