Pascack Hills held its annual Career Day on May 24 to have the students from all grades learn about the different professions offered to them in the future. The teenagers were allowed to select five of the numerous jobs that they wanted to hear about, and out of the five choices, the school decided three for them to listen to. Here were some of the adults who visited the school during Career Day, according to the Career Day choices document:

  1. Amy Zuckerman, Senior Vice President, Human Resources – Salvatore Ferragamo

Working in an executive capacity for over 20 years, Amy Zuckerman shows students the diverse industry of fashion. She is a great person to listen to for fashion lovers or people who are considering a career in the fashion or retail industry; there are the exciting opportunities and changes in the industry and how keeping the customer happy is the key to success.

Freshman Gabriel Broadman said, “I really enjoyed listening to the three visitors, Peter Fournier, Alison Strasser Winston, and Tim Wieland with three unique professions, insurance executive and director/choreographer, clinical psychologist, and United States Coast Guard. I might have an interest in one of those careers in the future.”
