Our Career Days take students to every corner of Portland, from sleek downtown offices to the industrial Swan Island. Employers show students their workplaces, share their insights and describe how to pursue different careers. During most Career Days, students get a chance to practice skills needed on the job through hands-on activities and other kinds of experiential, work-based learning.
