Career Activities

Career Speaker Forum Project

CAVIT's career speaker forum project is a first semester activity where students collaborate in teams of two to effectively confirm, manage, and evaluate a guest speaker for their program class. Students attend a one-day professional development training where they are taught how to conduct a cold call, confirm an appointment, dress for the activity, greet the speaker and introduce them to the class, and ask questions at the conclusion of the presentation. This is a required activity for all first year students.

    Career Display Project

    CAVIT's career display project is another first semester project where students collaborate in a team of two to research a career and complete a presentation board with job information and pictures. Once the board is complete, students present their findings before an industry panel for five minutes. We display all boards for students to choose the coveted "CAVIT Board Favorite" award.

    Financial Reality Fair

    All CAVIT students will participate in a hands-on budgeting simulation that trains about saving, prioritizing, credit cards, predatory lenders, and much more. Through a reality fair format, financial planning volunteers will use their experience to guide students towards a successful future!

    Passion Board Project

    Each second year student will develop a visual display that highlights their academic achievements, future plans, and accomplishments. The display will serve as an introduction to potential employers. This board will be used to showcase students at an upcoming CAVIT reverse job fair. Students will be evaluated on the display and their ability to present themselves professionally and communicate the passion board information to their classmates.
