More and more high schools are requiring students to do job shadows, internships, and volunteer hours than ever before, but it can be hard to find and connect with local employers. One of the best ways to get started in any work based learning initiative is to leverage community resources that already exist, such as the Chamber of Commerce.
In this clear and concise presentation (includes seven PDF slides and a 11 minute mp4 video) students will learn:
- what a Chamber of Commerce is
- overview of the top three Chamber resources students can use in finding a job shadow location, internship, or volunteer opportunity
- helpful demonstration and examples of how to use these three Chamber of Commerce resources
- the number one thing employers look for when making hiring decisions
This presentation is perfect for use in any career education program, as a guidance presentation, within a work-based learning class, or as a homeroom activity.
Grades: 9-12 / 11 minute mp4 video, 7 PDF slides / available on Teachers Pay Teachers
