First Capital Federal Credit Union holds its career exploration program!
YORK, PA (April 4, 2017) — On March 23, 2017, First Capital Federal Credit Union in conjunction with The York County Alliance for Learning (YCAL), held a Career Exploration Day. More than a dozen sophomores, juniors and seniors from area high schools came to First Capital’s headquarters for a look inside the financial industry.
We began the day at 9:00 a.m. with an introduction and tour of First Capital. Students had the opportunity to meet with various staff who help make the credit union run. From IT to Accounting, the students learned how every position works together to contribute to the Credit Union’s success. After the tour, students heard from a career panel. The individuals on the panel talked about their career path and how they got to where they are today. Then, our team discussed the differences between banks and credit unions and students played an interactive game, “Who wants to be a First Capital member.”
After a break for lunch, we discussed budgeting and students took part in a budgeting activity. To end the day, we played a jeopardy-like game that quizzed them on everything they learned during the day-long session. The day wrapped up around 2:00 p.m.
The Career Panel shares with students about their education and career path. (Kevin Linden, Jeremy Ackerley, Jenna Reachard)
York County Students tour the First Capital West York branch to learn more about job opportunities within the financial industry.
