Student Testimonials
Job shadows have very much so influenced my life powerfully. I have gotten an insight into many various careers in the medical field. A year ago, I had no idea there was a difference between and MRI tech, an ultrasound tech, and a radiologist, but as I job shadowed all those, I realized how different they all were. Before doing job shadows I didn’t realize there were so many choices I get to pick from to get a career. I used to know only of nurses and doctors, and job shadows helped me explore more, and also learn the different career choices and the responsibilities of each one of them.

Employer Testimonials
I just finished talking with another job shadow student. Since we are a small start-up company, students spend most of their time with me talking about career options in aviations. During the interviews, I hear concise lucid questions from well-prepared students. Their questions and attitude are clearly goal-oriented. Having students in our place of business offers us the opportunity to introduce young people to aviation and small business, to dispel any misconceptions and to encourage them to pursue their aviation career options.

Career Exploration Resources

Resources to assist with exploring possible careers, employment trends and salaries have been added to the site.

In partnership with the Ready to Learn Ready to Work Program Claggett Creek Middle School hosted their 2nd Annual Career Day in January 2014.  300 8th graders had a choice between 30 different career options and heard from professionals from the top 4 careers they selected.  Students completed written reflections regarding the day and below are some great comments and feedback about their experiences.

Claggett Creek Middle School Career Day Student Comments;

“I now think I want to be a General Surgeon or a Paramedic.  I learned about the Explorers Program where you can do a ride along and get training in the field when you turn 14. I am going to sign up today!”

“The thing that stood out to me the most was the social worker because she has a hard job.  She works with people that have fallen on hard times.  I would like to make an impact on families like she does.”

“Before today I did not know what I wanted to do.  Now I know I want to go into law enforcement.  I learned a lot about a typical day in the life of a sheriff and how they help people.”

“I really liked career day.  I learned how to stay fit and live a healthy lifestyle.  I also decided I wanted to be a fitness coach.  I hope I get another chance for a career day.  Thank you.”

“Today I walked into these classes thinking, why did I pick this and walked out thinking I wanted to do all four careers!  I learned that I can do anything if I keep my grades up and work hard.”
