Career goals and dream jobs can drive decisions after high school, but how do teens decide what type of work interests them? The Arlington Public Library is helping tackle that question with its first Career Library for teens on Saturday, July 20 at the Downtown Library. Professionals from a variety of fields will be on hand for informational interviews and casual conversations about the workplace.

Teens who are curious about their future job prospects are invited to network and explore multiple options, ranging from construction inspection and code compliance to creative paths like photography and writing. Students can ask their own questions to learn about the different fields, or suggested conversation topics will be provided for teens who want to cover the basics.

“Learning about lots of different career fields is a great way to discover what you’d like to do,” says teen librarian Loretta Zhang. “We’re excited to expose teens to options for their future.”

Career Library will meet from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 20 at the Downtown Library. Click here for more information.
