Website Inspires Kids to Find Career Paths
Maria Livecchi Connolly has created a website where kids and teens can research career paths by reading about jobs from the perspectives of those who hold them. Content is extracted from interviews with Maria’s friends, friends of friends, family members, and Chi Omega Sisters.
Although many occupations are well-represented, such as nurses, teachers, and dental hygienists, there are some surprises. “There are interviews with an air traffic controller, a NASA aerospace engineer, and a clothing designer,” Maria said. The site already has interviews with more than 100 people.
“I try to post a different career every day,” said this initiate of Psi Theta/Old Dominion U. “I am also always searching for content,” says Maria.” Visit the site at www.mychildspath.com, where you may contact Maria, too.
Maria’s site has been featured in several publications in the Southern Maine area where she lives, including the parenting magazine Raising Maine, and, in addition, she has been interviewed on the radio.
