Career Day is a television program that introduces young adults to career exploration and awareness.

To encourage students to make informed decisions, young adults must be introduced to career awareness, such as the concept that success in most careers requires education and training (Fouad, 1995). As the National Alliance of Business recommended in its 1999 publication Preparing Young People for Tomorrow Workplace, "Middle school is an ideal age at which to expose students to the challenging world of work The program motivational and inspirational message of each guest empowers audiences of all ages to investigate career opportunities, which has been proven to enhance academic performance, facilitate high school completion and encourage postsecondary education (Broadening Career Horizons for Students in At-Risk Environments, Brien et al (1999). Each segment of Career Day delivers an educational and informational message that supports current social, intellectual and emotional aspects of children ages 13 and up.
