Job Shadow

A great way to experience your chosen career is to job shadow.

Students at the Greene County Career and Technology Center are encouraged to participate in job shadowing.  The shadowing may be done during school hours.  Students will spend a minimum of six hours observing a job site sponsor.

The goal of the job shadow is to learn as much as possible by watching, listening, and asking good questions as well as taking good notes.

For an application, please contact Mrs. Nix, in the Workforce Development Coordinator’s office by email: nixj@greenectc.org or phone: 724-627-3106 ext. 236. Please note that your shop teacher, parents and home school administrator must approve your job shadowing experience.

How can your job shadow help you as you prepare for a trade?

  • First-hand knowledge of what goes on in the workplace
  • Career exploration
  • Networking with people who can assist you with your future career
  • Connecting your education with real-world work

 

Internships

Students at the Greene County Career and Technology Center have the opportunity to complete an internship in their program of study.  Internships can be paid or unpaid, which is determined by the employer.  Internships are a great opportunity in which you can work up to five days at a workplace. 

 

Internships give the career students the opportunity to gain the real-world experience that all employers seek, and they are a great way to expand a student's professional network, as well as their resume.

 

Students that are interested in completing an internship should contact Mrs. Nix, Workforce Development Coordinator, at nixj@greenectc.org or 724-627-3106 ext. 236.
