 The mid-island staging of CHOICES Career & Education Show will take place on Tuesday April 19 at The Golf View Hotel in Mandeville from 9a.m. – 4p.m. This will be the 6th staging of the event in that parish and the first of four major CHOICES career and education events for 2011. Others will be staged in Kingston in June and August and Montego Bay in October.

Students, teachers, guidance counsellors, parents and persons concerned about making the right career choice are expected to attend from Manchester and nearby parishes including St. Catherine, Clarendon, St. Elizabeth and Westmoreland. They will get an opportunity to learn how to choose the right career and the educational path required to take them there.  An exhibition will be set up featuring educational and other related institutions.

On the day’s schedule will be a leadership training workshop for students conducted by Mrs. Brigette Levy, Leadership Specialist with The Leadership Institute, a professional development session for educators and a Career Key Workshop for selected participants who will be taken through the career decision process using The Career Key Test.

At the show, talented, creative youngsters will also get the chance to compete in the third leg of the CHOICES Theme Song Competition.  Entrants must produce two-minute songs that are clean and  motivational, include the CHOICES slogan “EVERYBODY HAS CHOICES” and be developed around the concept of making good career choices.

Asked about the staging of this show in Mandeville, General Manager of CHOICES Career Advice, Angela deFreitas noted that, “CHOICES is committed to helping all Jamaicans to get on the right career path.  It is therefore imperative that we extend this offer beyond the main metropolitan townships so that students in all nooks and crannies in Jamaica can benefit”.

In its over ten years in operation, CHOICES has become a market leader in the area of career and education advice, especially for the teenage/secondary-level market. The company’s popular publication, CHOICES Career & Education Magazine,  The Career Key self assessment test and a variety of other helpful career-related products will be available at the Mandeville show.

The Career Key is a vital, professional assessment tool that assists individuals to identify a career that is best suited for their personality. CHOICES is the sole authorised publisher in Jamaica of The Career Key.
