EXPLORATION and ENLIGHTENMENT
The Career Shadowing program at Rocky River High is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors who are interested in a specific career area and/or who would like to discuss and explore possible career options. This program can be of great benefit to students in helping them clear up many questions they may have pertaining to their future, prior to entering college or the world of work.
This program offers students the opportunity to spend a day with a professional who currently works in the career field the student has expressed interest in. Students are exposed to real life work situations and discover first hand what a typical day is like. Students may spend a few hours or a full day at the shadowing site, asking questions, performing tasks, etc. The experience allows high school students to gain insight and enlightenment about the careers that best compliment their specific interests and abilities.
To initiate the Career Shadowing process, students and parents are required to complete a Career Shadowing Application. Applications have been provided to students in class and are also available on the guidance website, in the guidance office and they are available at the Career Shadowing Office.
