This newsletter is intended for upcoming graduates & beyond


I've been creating career newsletters that have temporary and part-time jobs for high school students. However, there are many companies in Northwest Indiana that have full-time jobs for students once they graduate high school. We know that planning your future is very important to you so together with the guidance department we have composed a list of career type jobs that we think you'd might be interested in. (HINT: Many of them only require a high school diploma and pay way over minimum wage). The goal is to bring awareness of the many career opportunities available in our state.
