Earl Warren students learn about career options

As of now, Earl Warren eighth-grader Kyle Grozen said his career goal is to become an athletic trainer.

The 14-year-old currently plays water polo, baseball and soccer.

But in case his plans change as he moves through high school and college, Kyle’s decision could be aided by the interactions he had with professionals from more than 20 fields as part of Earl Warren’s annual career day. Some of the roughly 680 student participants had the chance to meet an FBI agent, firefighters, athletes and a journalist, to name a few.

“This is all about exploration,” counselor Adam Camacho said, adding that students who find a field of interest will then often seek out guidance on how to begin pursuing it for the future. “The whole college conversation comes into play.”

This year’s career day was divided into four 25-minute sessions. Students were surveyed on the professions they would be most interested in, with the top 29 occupations holding classroom sessions. Students were allowed to choose three to attend. New this year, the 15 fields that did not poll as favorably instead set up booths in the Earl Warren courtyard. In addition to their three classroom sessions, students had 25 minutes of freedom to explore the outdoor area.

“I was looking forward to it; it’s always fun,” Kyle said. “You’re doing things and getting taught things that otherwise you might not get to know from someone who’s gone through it firsthand.”
