This session kicks off the Library’s third annual Cool Careers Summer Series! College is getting more expensive by the year, but there’s good news! This career exploration series gives teens and young adults the chance to speak to experts about different in-demand career paths – what the job is really like, the advantages and disadvantages, and the best ways to break into that industry. Career talks will happen at 11AM Wednesdays in May, June, and July, at the Main Library on Goodwood.
