Hey St. Laurence High School!

We see you. You’re there making plans for your future. Working hard to set yourself up for success in college and your eventual career. That’s why Nerdy Girl Success® created this event. Everything you want to know about careers and preparing for your future is right here! Okay, maybe not EVERYTHING but pretty darn close. Just check out the agenda below.


9:00am - 11:00am | Career Fair

Visit with leaders across all industries. This is your time to learn about everything from the career you’re interested in from a woman who is actually in that field to discovering careers you never knew about or considered. Here are some of the careers and industries that will be there:

    • Marketing
    • Tech
    • Government
    • Business
    • And so much more!

9:50am - 11:15am | Workshops

  • The 3 Basics for getting ahead: Mentors, Sponsors and Networking – What’s the difference between a mentor and a sponsor? How do you find one? How do you work with them? How do you make the most of networking?
  • Stress Management AKA Finding Balance – You’re being pulled in all sorts of directions and trying to manage it all. Make sure you get good grades. Being active in extracurricular activities. Have a social life. Make time for family. Self care. It can all be overwhelming. There’s a way to find a balance with time management and stress management strategies.
  • Leadership without Authority – Employees/Team Members willingly follow leaders who are authentic, humble, who listen and are purpose-driven. When we believe that one can lead without authority, it frees people to lead without feeling like they need authority. In organizations, that means more team members taking initiative and assuming accountability, AND more senior leaders creating the space for new leaders to emerge. Learn more about what a great leader looks like in this breakout session!

11:20am - 12:20pm | Panel Discussion

Our panelists will be sharing their journeys from how they started just like you to where they are now. Learn their insights and strategies for success no matter what field you enter.

“I really appreciated this experience because it helped me feel more comfortable with not knowing what I want to do. It also gave me lots of exposure to interesting career options that I didn’t even know existed. “
~ Alexa (student attendee)

“From this experience, I was able to learn more about how to network and be comfortable doing it. I was also able to understand the ins and outs of different careers, many of which I had no prior knowledge about.”
~ Anaya (Student Attendee)
