High-schoolers get real world education


For the second consecutive year, high school seniors participated in a Junior Achievement job-shadowing program at Comcast’s Western New England region headquarters in Berlin. Berlin Mayor Rachel Rochette, House Majority Leader Joe Aresimowicz, and State Rep. Catherine Abercrombie joined representatives from Junior Achievement, Jr. Apprentice and Comcast, which included 20 students from Berlin High School and three students from Hartford’s Jr. Apprentice.

The goal of both Junior Achievement and Jr. Apprentice is to expose students to careers of interest and to demonstrate the connection between school and work.

The high-schoolers were paired up with Comcast volunteers who work in jobs matching student’s interests and they spent the morning talking about career goals and sharing real life experiences. The program gave students the opportunity to see firsthand what it’s like to work in an office, practice interviewing, and get advice and tips for starting out in their own career and overcoming potential obstacles.
