As part of its commitment to provide opportunities that help prepare students for post-high school success, the Addison Trail Guidance Department hosted its annual Career Week from Oct. 22 to 26.

Throughout the week, business professionals shared information about their background, education and daily work life to give students insight into a variety of career fields. Teachers chose speakers who matched their subject area to assist students in connecting class instruction to real-world career possibilities. Guest presenters spoke with students about a variety of jobs and answered their questions. This is the fifth year Addison Trail has partnered with Junior Achievement of Chicago to offer representation from companies and organizations throughout the Chicago area.

Twenty-one speakers presented during Career Week, and 61 classes and 1,276 students participated. Career fields/professions that were showcased included health, welding, culinary, first responder (firefighter and police officer), legal counsel, banking, U.S. Navy and more.
