JA Career Readiness Conference: 
Preparing High School Students for Future Careers

career readiness conference
The JA Career Readiness Conference introduces high school students to future careers and provides them with the skills to apply for and secure their first job through interactive discussions, activities, and a business simulation competition.
During the JA Career Readiness Conference, students will have the opportunity to participate in ONE of the two different Conference Tracks during this one-day event. Below are the descriptions for each Conference Track. All students will also participate in the brand new, interactive financial literacy event.


Students compete to win scholarships using the JA Titan program online business simulation, which allows students to gain a real-world understanding of the effects management decisions have on a company's bottom line. Participants also learn what it's like to be a CEO in a global economy through these simulated business investments. 
Students determine the success or failure of their businesses based on how well they manage key decisions, including setting prices, filling production requests, establishing marketing, and investing in research and development.


Students explore the top careers in the next 3-6 years through interactive discussions and group activities with local professionals currently in these careers. Then local human resource experts will share tips with the students on applying for their first job and will conduct mock interviews.
The Career Track will also give participants the opportunity to learn about different industries and jobs to consider in their communities from local professionals in those industries. Students will be able to develop a vision and realistic plan for their futures through this track.
