Students glimpse jobs of the past at the Baltimore Museum of Industry

Forty-seven Baltimore County students from Towson, Parkville, Owings Mills and Pikesville high schools gathered at the Baltimore Museum of Industry to get a unique perspective on jobs of Baltimore’s past and present.

Students first toured the museum to learn about yesterday’s jobs in manufacturing, garment making, transportation, food processing and more. Later, a four-member employer panel talked with them about what the future may hold in several local business areas.

Joyce Serio, Baltimore County Public Schools transition team leader,  observed “The tour showed the students how far the world of work has progressed in the 20th and 21st century. The panel presentation provided valuable insight into current employment trends and the needed skills to survive in this century.”
