Experience Career Connections and Transform Your Passion Into Action
Both high school and college students are facing challenges identifying meaningful career paths because of limited career exploration opportunities.
The Job Shadow Project offers students unique work-based opportunities that provides onsite observations in real time and interactive learning. By gaining more career insight, students can investigate how organizations run and ascertain if the job in mind is a right fit for them.
In addition, understanding one's strengths is a key factor in the beginning of a career journey. Students are provided a personalized assessment that helps them to identify their passion and purpose.
Our specialists work with students to:
Evaluate personal strengths for a career
Develop a career interest action plan
Provide 1-3 day job shadow experience in interested career fields in your regional area
