RISE CF 2022
The RISE Memphis 11th Annual Career Forum returned Friday, May 6, 2022 with great acclaim. Safety remains our top priority at RISE Memphis, so our career forum this year was held virtually for all high school Goal Card students. This highly anticipated event gave insight to juniors and seniors on many unique post-secondary and career options open to them after graduation.
Goal Card students await this event because it gives them an opportunity to ask real world questions to top professionals on their terms, up close and personal. This year's panel definately didn't disappoint, they were just as engaging as they were relevant. Each panelist shared their career highlights, educational pursuits and low-points in their respective journeys. Students commented that they appreciated the male and female perspectives of the presenters, which played into why they scored this year's forum a resounding ten.
Devoted to the understanding that financial literacy is an integral part of making educational and career decisions, partner representatives were available to share critical information regarding college admissions, scholarships and FASFA. Goal Card students were able to inquire about company trends regarding tuition reimbusement benefits and prospective employer policies on compensation for advanced education.
RISE is especially pleased that this group of exceptional young professionals volunteered to interact with our highly motivated students. Students who are looking for true insight into the world of work and how they can make their transitions to colleges and careers armed with the right information. Your company, small business or alma mater can support the RISE Goal Card Career Forum too. It takes dedication, resourcefulness and connections to enable students to make informed decisions about their paths after graduation, we would like to invite you to become a RISER and make a difference in the lives of youth in Memphis.
