WHAT: Observing someone at work and Learning what is involved in a typical work day.
WHERE: A location selected by you or the school based on your future career plans
WHEN: All Job Shadowing needs to be completed before April 23, 2020
HOW LONG: Your Job Shadowing Experience needs to be 2-4 consecutive hours.
Before Job Shadowing
In order to better serve your needs, you will be required to select three career areas you are interested in possibly pursuing. These interests will determine possible career partners for your job shadowing experience. Then, you need to select a Job Shadowing Option. The three options are outlined below.
Students who do not have any connections but want to job shadow on their own time should select this option. With Option 2, JTHS provides students with a business partner based on career interests. The student is then responsible for contacting the business to schedule the job shadowing experience in order to complete the program requirements.
Option 3 is designed for students with busy schedules. If a student selects this option, JTHS assigns students to a job shadowing experience based on career interests. JTHS will transport students to a from the experience. This takes place during a school day and meets all program requirements.
**This is meant for those who are unable to complete Option 1 and 2 as spaces are limited!
