Junior Professional Shadowing Provides Insights for Career Opportunities

Each spring, the Junior class experiences the real world of prospective careers, thanks to our Junior Professional Shadowing Program. 
During the three-day experience, coordinated by College Counselors Ms. Susan Emmerich and Ms. Maria Mueller, Juniors spend time with a sponsor in a potential career or passion of their choice. This year, more than 185 Juniors were paired with a variety of professionals, including engineers, policy advisors, lawyers, surgeons and members of the United States Coast Guard.
Students keep journals detailing their experiences and thoughts on the professionals they observed. This career exploration helps students decide vocations of interest or discover their post-secondary education selections as they narrow their college search process.
