FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Tuesday, January 6, 2004

Professionals from a wide variety of fields will be on hand from 1 to 4 p.m., Wednesday, February 4, to speak with Hudson Valley Community College students at the college's Career Exploration Day.

The event will be held in the field house of the McDonough Sports Complex, and will be sponsored by the United States Army, which will provide lunch to participants.

"This is an excellent opportunity for students to explore a variety of careers with the people who are in the work world right now," said Deborah Spence of the college's Center for Careers and Employment. "These professionals will be able to talk about their careers and lend some advice to those looking for employment or just thinking about a career path."

Five concurrent workshops will take place during the event. Workshop topics include: "Using e-Recruiting - the Job Search Tool," "Career Opportunities Within the Probation System," "Careers Within the Hospitality and Tourism Industry," "Forecasts and Trends in Industry" and "Federal Government Employment."

Non-traditional role models such as male nurses and women in the engineering, technology and criminal justice professions also will be available to speak to students.
