Career Frontiers!
Our Career Frontiers program continues On Tuesday December 1st, when we will offer a resume writing workshop from 3:30 - 4:30 in the library.  This workshop will give students insight and information about what you should include on your resume. If you don't currently have a resume, we'll help you get started. If you have a resume now, you can bring it to be reviewed and edited by our panel of experts.  All students are welcome to attend.  
Are you interested in learning about high paying, quality jobs at two of Humboldt County's most successful businesses?  On Tuesday December 8th, we will offer a field trip right after school to McCullough Construction and O & M Industries.

AHS Job Shadow 2015!

Thank you to Dr. Gabriel Enriquez, DDS, for hosting senior Faith Long on a recent Arcata High School Job Shadow.  Job Shadows allows students to spend 2 hours to a full work day learning about a business or career in our community.  It is easy to host a student, and an incredibly valuable learning opportunity.  If you can volunteer as a host, please contact Jim Ritter at jritter@nohum.k12.ca.us or 498-2917

 Do you have time and an interest in helping and mentoring Arcata High School students this year?  We are recruiting community adults to serve as career exploration mentors in a number of different programs.  You can join us as a guest on a career or leadership panel, host a group of students for a field trip tour of your workplace, host one or two students for a Job Shadow, (2 hours to a full work day long), or be available to meet with a student for a cup of coffee to offer career insight and information.  As a volunteer mentor, we will provide you with comprehensive guidelines and information to ensure that you are well prepared to work with students.  To volunteer, or for more information, please contact Jim Ritter at (707) 498-2917, or jritter@nohum.k12.ca.us   Thank you for your support of our students.
