Students are introduced to the JA Job Shadow program and the Seven Steps to Get Hired and Succeed. Through a close examination of specific skills and career clusters, they learn the key factors to investigate in career planning: skills, interest, work priorities, and job outlook.
Students review the Seven Steps to Get Hired and Succeed and analyze job-hunting skills. They then participate in mock interviews to prepare for the Job Shadow Challenge at the site visit.
Students reflect on what they learned before and during the site visit, and they practice business communication by composing a thank-you note. They then create one of four career-preparation tools: a career assessment, an elevator pitch, a resume, or an infographic profile.
