Chatham County, NC - Eleventh graders from across Chatham County can learn about careers of interest during the month of February as part of the annual job shadowing opportunity organized by the Career/Technical Education program. The majority of students spent a portion or all of a day with professionals on Friday, February 2, or Monday, February 5. A total of 113 high school juniors participated in job shadowing at area businesses, offices, and schools.

The job shadowing experience is part of a nationwide initiative that kicks off each year on Groundhog Day, this year February 2. This marks the tenth year Chatham County Schools has participated in the initiative.

“The Siler City Rotary Club assisted us in placing students in area businesses. With their support we were also able to give t-shirts to all of the students. Students who job shadowed a Rotarian were treated to lunch on February 5 during the Rotary meeting at the new Siler City Senior Center. As always, we appreciate their continued support,” said Robin Parks, Vocational Curriculum Specialist for Chatham County Schools.

The students expressed interest in a variety of fields including medical, legal, auto repair, education, child care, food services, and horticulture.
