PAL Attends Career Exploration Day
On Tuesday, November 6th, high school juniors and seniors from Point Breeze PAL and Tucker PAL participated in a Career Exploration Day at SAP. In the spirit of Election Day, each participant, chaperone and presenter voted for the next president by placing colored candies into respective containers.
Attendees heard from SAP America’s Vice President of HR, Brigette McInnis-Day about building a personal brand and how to begin a successful career path. Everyone then went on a tour of SAP’s high-tech and environmentally friendly headquarters. Groups of participants rotated through several activities including building the highest tower possible using only spaghetti and tape, technology demos with smart phone apps still in development, brainstorming to develop new apps, identifying important aspects of dream jobs and more.
Participants were able to spend lunch networking with SAP employees. PAL thanks SAP for their continued dedication to education programs and career readiness!
