The Babylon Junior-Senior High School Business Department recently held its annual Catch-A-Career Breakfast. The eight guest speakers included four former students of Director of Practical Arts and Business Claire Reilly, and four local parents/business representatives who spoke to the students about their career paths.

Throughout the course of the morning, the panel spoke to the attending students about their education and background, and discussed “soft skills” such as public speaking, time management and networking. The visiting panel holds professional positions spanning titles of public accountant, chief financial officer, managing director, social media manager, private accountant, brand manager and more. 

The students appreciated the opportunity to hear about the panelists history and were eager to ask questions about salary, hours worked, career advancement and advanced degrees. 

Additionally, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Dan D’Amico, Babylon Junior-Senior High School Principal Al Cirone and Babylon Junior-Senior High School Assistant Principal Jennifer Mangone were on hand to enjoy the presentation.
