7th Annual Great Careers Conference Highlights Certificate and Two Year Degree Post-High School Programs

7th Annual Great Careers Conference Highlights Certificate and Two Year Degree Post-High School Programs

Posted by Elizabeth Egan on 4 January, 2019

December 13 marked the 7th annual Great Careers Conference – an event that highlights career options for students that are interested in pursuing limited training, a certificate, or two year degree after high school. Students from Issaquah High, Liberty, Skyline, and Gibson Ek High School started their day at Bellevue College, with opening statements from ISD Superintendent Ron Thiele and Issaquah Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Kathy McCorry, before breaking off to sessions to explore job options.

Students attended four informational sessions of their choosing (chosen during registration), and then reconvened as a large group for the College and Career Connections Expo. Bellevue College, Lake Washington Technical College, Renton Technical College, and more were on hand to discuss programs at their campuses that aligned with the careers students had just explored.

  • Artistic Design
