Student Testimonials
I have been in the health Occupations classes for two years now. From my experiences, I have learned that I wanted to become a physical therapist. I have been on a couple of job shadows before but I never really knew what happened in emergency rooms and clinics. When I finally got the chance to go on a job shadow to a local physical therapy clinic, I found that I really enjoyed seeing what a physical therapist does. I used to want to be a surgeon but since I didn’t get to a chance to job shadow a surgeon, I changed my career path. Job shadows have a major impact on me so I know what to expect, and what there is to do.

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.
