MAYO CLINIC CAREER SPEAKER PROGRAM

The Career Speaker Program brings employees from Mayo Clinic in Rochester and Mayo Health System into the classroom to talk about their jobs. Speakers are recruited and trained before they enter the classroom. The Career Speaker Program has been designed to support school districts in meeting the Minnesota Graduation Standard for career investigation. Topics covered by the speakers are:

  • Skills needed and education requirements for the job
  • Tasks and skill building for the job
  • Personal experiences in the job
  • Career pathways
  • Typical days
  • Linkages between education and the workplace
  • Career trends and demands
  • Job pluses and minuses

The Career Speaker Program will be offered to as many students and schools as possible, limited only by speaker capacity at Mayo Clinic in Rochester and Mayo Health System. If your school would be interested in the program, you can e-mail careerawareness@mayo.edu to inquire about the status and availability of speakers.
