Career Services

The goal of Career Services is to have all students leave Wethersfield High School with the opportunity to learn about themselves and explore and learn potential career pathways. Success in the new economy requires a combination of academic knowledge and technical ability. It includes self and career exploration - the combination of interests/abilities & education/training. This will be done through lunch and learns, industry tours, career interviews, field research and job shadowing.
