Thomas County Central High School Work-Based Learning program’s annual Job Shadow Day is almost here. Businesses/industries who want to help out by allowing students to observe their employees in action are needed.
Past career fields represented include welding, veterinary medicine, insurance, early childhood education, nursing, accounting, office management, public safety, social work, physical therapy, automotive technology, emergency medical services, reception and payroll, human resources and real estate. Students spend the day observing employees in their selected field and learning job basics.
“Job Shadow Day gives businesses and industries the opportunity to guide students in their specific areas and share what they do,” TCCHS Work-Based Learning Coordinator Brandi Miranda said.
Juniors and seniors are eligible to apply for the experience. Students are selected based upon grades, attendance, behavior, teacher recommendation and interest.
This year’s event is Feb. 28. The deadline to register is Feb. 11.
“I am excited to host my first job shadowing day and believe this is a great opportunity for our students,” Miranda said.
