Job Shadow Day Success

The Career Center turns education into a passion. On April 11th, Arlington Tech 10th Grade students partnered with a variety of nearby community businesses for their Job Shadow Day. Through the Arlington Chamber of Commerce and our business partner relationships students visited nearby businesses to learn what working in a field of their interest is actually like. The business who participated in this event included: the Arlington Fire Department, Laborers International Union, Clarendon Animal Care, UGroup, Idido’s Coffee, AlexRenew, Nano Tech, Stantec Architecture, Arlington Department of Environmental Services, Arlington Library, Lawrence Cheng Photography, MovementX, Arlington County Board, Deft Consulting, Veritcal Applications, Excella, Westin Crystal City, Virginia Tech Engineering Education Labs, Mercedes Benz of Arlington, Bright Horizons at Courthouse, Arlington Community Federal Credit Union, and Hungry Catering. Our students returned to school excited about what they had learned and what is possible after their education. The Career Center sends a sincere thank you to our business partners for providing our students with valuable and meaningful experiences which will last a lifetime.
