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.

Oregon GEAR UP

COLLEGE. It’s not a dream, it’s a plan.

That’s our motto at Oregon GEAR UP, and it guides our work with middle and high schools around the state. We support schools in their efforts to set high academic expectations, promote early awareness of college opportunities, and engage students in college and career planning. Our goal is to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in post secondary programs, and we work with school districts, colleges and universities, and a variety of partner organizations across Oregon to realize that goal.
