JA Career Speaker - Wisconsin | Northwest Area

To give students an opportunity to learn about four different career paths

JA Career Day provides students the opportunity to learn about a variety of careers in an engaging and hands-on classroom setting.

As a volunteer speaker, you will present the same brief overview (~30 minutes) of your career for up to four groups of students. Presentations should be interactive in nature and include:

  • Introductions
  • Field/Career that you are in
  • What other types of careers are available in your field?
  • What do you do?
  • What type of education do you need to get into your position?
  • What do you like about your career?
  • What challenges do you face?
  • What are the opportunities for advancement?
  • Outlook for career?


  • Engage and interact with the students. Bring along items to show the students what you do.
  • Tell an interesting story about your career.
  • Bring an item for kids to take home to promote your business
  • Play a game which helps them understand your career.
