President/CEO Ty Muse to Help Start Career-Focused Program
WINDSOR, NY - Visions Federal Credit Union President/CEO Ty Muse will help The Windsor Central School District launch a career-focused program at Windsor Central Middle School on Friday morning, October 26 at 8am called Careers and Cookies. Muse will speak to the students about his own career path and taking advantage of opportunity.
Each Friday during the school year, the Middle School will host a local professional who will share their professional pathway with students and answer questions about their job. The first such session will take place on Friday, November 2nd when a financial professional from Visions will speak about the finance industry and nature of the job.
The Careers and Cookies series is part of the District's Future Ready Knights program, which provides students with opportunities to explore seven career fields of interest: Agriculture, Business/Finance, Computer Science, Education, Engineering, Health Care and Trades.
Through partnerships developed with local employers, students will have the ability to learn about career options, tour local businesses, receive hands-on training and begin to build their own professional network.
Prior to sessions with local professionals, students will learn about the importance of "soft skills" such as proper eye contact, a firm handshake and being punctual. They will also learn facts about different industries represented during the Careers and Cookies series, such as the education needed, median salary, local employers and job forecast for different professions.\
