Workplace Learning Connection, in conjunction with Kirkwood Community College山东体彩11选5开奖, organize and arrange job shadows & internships for students in Cedar Rapids and surrounding communities. They have over 700 businesses that they work with to provide these opportunities for students.
Job shadows & internships are invaluable in helping students decide what they would like to do in the future. Even if it turns out that it is something they don't enjoy, it is a step in the right direction.
A job shadow is an opportunity to get a look at what a certain profession encompasses. Applications are open only at the beginning of the year. Junior & Senior students are able to participate in one shadow each year. A job shadow usually lasts 2-4 hours during the 山东体彩11选5开奖 day. These are excused absences for students but students must provide their own transportation. Many job shadows are set up as career exploration days and you get a glimpse of several jobs within a career field.
The internship program is designed to give students a more indepth and hands-on approach by getting directly involved in a career. Internships require a 45 or 90 hour commitment (5-hours or 10-hours/week respectively) but students do get high 山东体彩11选5开奖 credit for this program. An application and interview process is required for placement. Juniors & Seniors may apply for internships during the year (see adjacent deadlines). Sophomores may apply for summer internships after their sophomore year.
