What do administrators have to say?

"VirtualJobShadow.com allows students to explore career options through the eyes of industry experts without leaving their classrooms or homes. Whether they are in 6th grade just learning about various careers or in high school truly investigating and researching careers, this tool helps them see the day-to-day lives of actual company employees and highlights not only their daily tasks, but what type of skills they use and their pathways to achieving their careers. The tools puts a personal touch and actually allows students to understand the careers better.

Students can also watch the videos at home with their parents/guardians and have key conversations around topics such as: Would I like a career like this? What type of post-secondary school would I like to attend? Do I need to earn an industry credential in high school? What types of classes do I need to take in high school to prepare me for this career?”
