CSAT’s Career Convention is designed to expose students in grades 9-12 to the diverse and exciting career opportunities that are in-demand in Western New York. Each year, CSAT brings companies from thriving industries, including manufacturing, health, human services, engineering and hospitality on-sit to speak to students about career available after high school. In 2019, over 30 local companies were present, including Tops, The Buffalo Zoo, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Linde (formerly Praxair), Geico, BestSelf Behavioral Health and National Fuel. 

    While businesses share information about their companies, their industries and the need for skilled workers, local colleges and universities were on hand to talk about their popular programs and the educational opportunities available to students to prepare them for their chosen career field.
