October Comes Bearing College and Career Opportunities

College and Career Fair at HPHS

CDI is ushering in the fall with a wide range of post-secondary options for students! Our annual College and Career Fairs host up to 400 students, parents, and alumni. Over 47 institutions – from SUNY/CUNY, New York Institute of Technology, Adelphi University, and Drexel University to the NYPD, FDNY, Non-Traditional Employment for Women, and the Arrojo Cosmetology School – will be attending and presenting to students at the upcoming College and Career Fair at City-As-School in late October. Fairs at MCNDHS and HPHS are scheduled for later this year.

“We have a mix of two- and four-year college options, vocational and job readiness programs being represented this year,” said Tomiko Abreu, CDI Post-Secondary Coordinator at CAS. “At the start of every term, we send out a survey to students, to find out what would be most helpful for them, and tailor the service providers and presenters to meet their needs. These events allow our students to network directly with the reps from institutions and to gain insider knowledge on what the college or program is looking for.”

“I’m really looking forward to the Fair this month,” said Jenny, a junior at CAS. “I’m nervous about talking to the reps and making a good first impression. But CDI gave us a list of questions to use as icebreakers, so I’m feeling a lot more confident!”
