The Briarcrest Career Conference is a professional, off-site conference for Briarcrest High School Juniors and Seniors to explore careers of interest and learn about new, emerging careers. Briarcrest parents, alumni, and local leaders serve as career representatives and host 30-minute, interactive sessions with our students. The connections our students make with local professionals in their career fields of interest prove beneficial as they begin transitioning from high school to college to career.
Thank you to the parents, alumni and community leaders who committed to invest in the lives of our students as a career representative and speaker at the Briarcrest Career Conference on April 9, 2020.
After carefully considering the CDC’s recommendation on group gatherings and subject to the “Safer at Home” community guidelines, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Briarcrest Career Conference. We are determined to navigate these uncharted waters with the best interests of our students, parents, alumni and community leaders in mind.
Thank you again to all our speakers who were willing to spend time and share insight with our students as they explore careers.
FOR CAREER REPRESENTATIVES
Career Representatives connect with our students by sharing how they became interested in their career, what steps they took to begin down their chosen career path, and a few of the most attractive aspects of their career. The goals for our conference breakout sessions are to build connections with the students, provide insight into what success looks like, and offer evidence of living and working as an authentic follower of Christ.
