Thank you, Peter Biber, a WHS parent, for speaking to our WHS students for Career Café! More than 70 students attended, and broke our last year’s record. Many students had to be turned away due to capacity concerns.

You helped our students understand the IT industry business structures, various types of IT career pathways, the earning potentials, the skills and experiences required to achieve each level of the positions, and the crucial roles that marketing, sales, and customer success departments play to sustain business profit.

Your presentation expands our students' understanding of the IT industry and helps them think and explore their career prospects in the field.

With over 20 years of executive experience as a global support manager, you have much knowledge and wisdom that benefited our students. You encouraged them to study how the business work and understand customer's motivation. You shared tips on how to prepare for job interviews. You stayed long and answered all their questions thoroughly.

Thank you again for taking time away from your busy work to inform and inspire our student community.

Our special thanks also go to our community partners Krispy Kreme #krispykreme #donuts, Target #target, In & Out #innoutburger #burger, Costco #costco. Thank you so much for your generous donations. Our youth empowering program wouldn't be possible without your support!
