Career Day 2022 at WTB

Career Day 2022 @ WTB!
Posted on 06/17/2022

After a two year break due to Covid restrictions, Career Day returned to Walter T. Bergen on Monday June 13. A long time tradition at the school, going back to at least 1980, Career Day brings together representatives of up to 25 or career areas who conduct 15 minute simulated job interviews with the 8th grade students. After the interviews the presenters move to classrooms where they conduct group sessions with students from all grades.

At the same time Officers from the Passaic County Sheriff’s Department provided demonstrations by their SWAT Unit, Mounted Unit, Bomb Squad and CSI Detectives to 5th and 6th grade students outside on the blacktop.

The 8th grade students were prepared by their teachers Mrs. Bober and Miss Esposito in interviewing techniques, resume writing, and “dressing for success”. By all accounts the students did a great job!

The Career Day Program was produced by Library Assistant Dennis DiLorenzo, ably assisted by Christine Spencer and Stacy Scaturro.
