Career Expo - Past Events

2023 Career Expo Connects Students with Career Pathways

More than 300 SMUHSD students and their family members braved an intense Bay Area storm to check out the Districtwide Career Expo on Tuesday, March 14. The expo, formerly known as Stay in the Bay with $100K, is in its third year and was held at San Mateo High School and generously sponsored by San Francisco International Airport.

At the expo, students learned about high-paying careers, they networked with industry professionals, they got to participate in hands-on activities and they learned about various opportunities from the 50+ representatives from Bay Area companies, apprenticeships and training programs.
