Benton County Students Attend Annual Career Convention

On February 26, 2024, the Corvallis School District hosted the annual Career Convention for Benton County 11th-grade students. This yearly convention aims to provide students with real-world insights and experiential learning opportunities. It also fulfills the Career-Related Learning Experience that is part of a student’s Personalized Learning Requirement, an Oregon diploma requirement.

At the event, students explored at least three career paths, received feedback on their current resume, and participated in two mock interviews. Over 700 students from Corvallis, Philomath, Monroe, and Kings Valley schools attended, and over 130 volunteers from across Benton County donated their time to contribute to the success of this event. 

In addition to the benefits for students, this event is an opportunity for community members to play an active role in shaping the future of our students. By contributing their time and expertise, they become crucial to creating an engaging learning environment.

A special ‘thank you’ to all staff and volunteers who made this event possible!
