Individual Study Job Shadows

Thank you card by Briggs

Our third-year students in Individual Study have been busy this quarter participating in job shadows and class job site tours/guest speakers. 

Job shadowing helps students gain knowledge of an occupation through observation. OLS students were able to follow and observe a trained and experienced employee in one or more of their career pathways. Being part of the physical work environments helps our students experience the realness of a work environment on a daily basis. 

A few examples of this quarters job shadows included:  

  • Simpson Elementary School (Para-Educator)
  • Closer Pros (Data Entry)
  • GrayPants (Assembly)
  • Microsoft Azure (Software Engineer)
  • New Horizons (Pre-school Teacher)
  • WA State Patrol (Highway Trooper)
  • Manifesgo (Video Editing/Production
  • Bishop’s Barber Shops (Franchisee Ownership)
  • and many more!

We are thankful to all the business who took time out of their day to assist our students in exploring their career pathways.
