Dollar Careers Convention 2018

Careers Convention

Every two years, the Academy holds a Careers Convention. This year's will be held on Wednesday 28 March from 7.00-9.15pm.

The evening is primarily intended for the pupils in the Senior School and their parents, should they wish to attend, but parents of Prep & Junior school pupils who are interested are welcome to join us on this occasion

The aim of the evening is to provide an opportunity for pupils and parents to get a glimpse of a range of careers from those directly involved in them.

Over 80 presenters are involved and we are delighted that so many friends of the Academy, parents and Former Pupils are contributing their expertise.



TIMETABLE

Talks begin at 7.00pm.

Pupils / parents can come and go as they please, and do not have to arrive at the beginning, attend the talks or stay until the end.

All the classrooms in Playfair and Younger Buildings are open for drop-in chats from 7.15 – 9.15pm.

You are asked to avoid passing through the Library, which acts as the Career representatives’ base.
