We have included new Scholarship and Career information for you to check out this month. Please remember to schedule your IGP with your senior counselor if you have not completed yours for this school year. We look forward to a great semester and GRADUATION!
Job Shadowing 📚
Job Shadowing is a career development tool that allows students to “go behind the scenes with working professionals” while they are on the job and learn first-hand information about careers. SCVCS encourages all students to participate in Job Shadowing. Students may participate in “Virtual Job Shadowing” and/ or “On-Site (Face to Face) Job Shadowing”.
**Job Shadowing is NOT REQUIRED; however, it is a great opportunity to learn about a career of interest.
Benefits of Job Shadowing:
1. Learn about a career of interest.
2. Make a connection with someone in the workforce. This can help you in the future.
3. Career and Technology teachers will award 10 extra credit points to those students enrolled in a career and technology course and complete the job shadowing requirements.
You must job shadow a career that is related to the career and technology class you are taking. For example, if you are taking Marketing then you job shadow a job in the Marketing area. If you are not enrolled in a career and technology course and are enrolled in Spanish, Art, or PE, you will only receive extra credit if the job is directly related to Spanish, Art, or PE. Please keep in mind it isn’t all about earning the extra credit it is gaining knowledge of different careers.
Deadline to complete Job Shadowing: March 31, 2023
Contact your Counselor/ Advisor if you have any questions.
