Career Exploration Fair

2014 My Future. My Way. Career Exploration Fair

October 29, 2014
Music City Center
7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

The Career Exploration Fair will provide an avenue for high school freshmen in Nashville schools to explore a breadth of career areas.  It will host approximately 5,000 freshmen from the Academies of Nashville and the Magnets of Nashville on October 29, 2014 at the Music City Center. Students will complete career exploration research at school in preparation for their visit and learn about professionalism. They will also participate in an essay contest and other follow-up activities to show what they learned. Our goal is to raise awareness and excitement that will allow freshmen to talk with local professionals about their interests and see the relevance of their studies. Increasing career awareness will help prepare students to be successful in high school, in college, and beyond. 

Community Support

The 2014 My Future. My Way. Career Exploration Fair is presented by Shoney’s, whose support makes this event possible. Also, special thanks to our host, the Music City Center. Additional support is provided by the five Academies of Nashville Partnership Councils and the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce’s CEO Champions.



Schedule and Flow – Students will arrive and depart according to a staggered schedule beginning at 7:30 a.m. and ending at 2:00 p.m.  This year we are encouraging parents to come tour the event between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to help raise awareness about how our businesses are helping impact the education of high school students in Nashville.
