COSER 520 Behind the Scene Career Explorations

School to Work/Industry-Education Activities Coordination (COSER 520)
This COSER service offers ‘Behind the Scenes Career Explorations’ during the school year that provide high school students with one-of-a-kind experiences to observe a variety of careers in action. Students travel to various destinations in WNY that target specific careers, tour the facility and explore the skill sets and education required to be successful in those career paths.

Each month we will travel to destinations that target specific career opportunities, and explore the skill sets needed to be successful in that career path.
