Get Pottstown’s Inside Scoop on Working World

POTTSTOWN PA – Pottstown High School seniors and juniors who are thinking ahead toward their career and livelihood options won’t be denied the opportunity, offered by the Pottstown School District, to learn more about specific vocations from people involved in them.

Coronavirus is interrupting many routines, including in-person interviews in which students can learn about career choices and options, it reported in a Sunday (April 12, 2020) e-mail. High school Career Coach Susan Pritt hasn’t let the bug hinder that. Pritt is conducting a series of video interviews as an alternative, and is posting them to a special district webpage, here.

Pritt so far has talked with an attorney, a Division 1 athlete and college coach, a community educator, a marketer, a union mechanic, an operator at ESPN and, most recently, a zone manager for Hormel. The interviews run between 10 and 27 minutes in length, and supply detailed and insider information about what it’s like to work in each job.

She’s looking to record others, too. If you’re in the work world and are willing like to share insights with Pottstown’s students, send Pritt an e-mail to spritt@pottstownk12.org.
