All Districts – How can the cold be helpful to a plumber? How do you create a marketing campaign for a product? How can a few rips and tears change the design of a tutu?
These are just some of the behind-the-scenes tips that hundreds of area high school students have received by participating in Groundhog Shadow Day, offered by Kent ISD’s Career Readiness department.
The job-shadowing event, which was cancelled last year due to COVID-19, will be offered virtually this year on Feb. 5. Students in grades 9-12 will be able to explore more than 120 career fields such as healthcare, construction, law enforcement, manufacturing, engineering, interior design, education, graphic design and hospitality.
Three 60-minute, virtual job-shadow slots will be available, from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Teachers may sign up an entire class or individual students may register for their own job shadow.
More details and a registration link are available at kentisd.org/groundhog. The registration deadline is Jan. 24.
