Teens on the Job provides 10th grade students with a unique opportunity to learn about a chosen career field and the work world. This is a competitive program designed to provide students with as close to a realistic view of the process of applying for a job and a day in the work force.
The program is open
to the entire tenth grade but only twenty pairs will be selected. Student pairs
will be required to fill out an application of interest, participate in an
interview, meet deadlines, experience a day in the life of an employee in a
chosen field; network and write follow up letters. The student pair will go through a normal day
on the job and will have an up-close look at how the skills learned in school
may be put into action in the workplace.
