Exploring Future Paths: Career Orientation Week 2024

Guest Post: Max, GISB 10th Grade & Marketing Department Intern

From June 10th to June 14th, our school was buzzing with excitement as our 10th-grade students immersed themselves into Career Orientation Week 2024. This annual event provided a unique opportunity for our young learners to shadow professionals in fields of their interest and engage in internships tailored to their aspirations.

Each student was paired with a professional, getting a firsthand look at their dream career. From Training a soccer team to working at a biochemistry lab, our students experienced the daily realities of different professions.

We extend our gratitude to all the professionals, businesses, and organizations that opened their doors to our students and shared their knowledge and expertise. Their support leaves a lasting impact on our students’ future.

Our students participated in internships at the following companies/organizations: Goethe Institut Boston, New England Revolution, TKD Healthcare Design, Boston Children’s Hospital, Behnisch Architects, Steen Laboratory, Paragonix Technologies, The Community House, Shattuck Hospital, Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center, Jedox Inc, and the GISB Marketing Department. 

GISB’s Career and College counselor, Becky Roihl, deserves special recognition for organizing this initiative and guiding students toward paths aligned with their passions.
