Recently we hosted a sharp group of students from O’Farrell Charter School for a job shadow event. We’ve held many job shadows, but each one is a unique opportunity what makes PeopleConnect and our industry special. This one brought us some of the most outgoing students we’ve seen so far, which made the event especially fun for us.
As soon as the students arrived at our San Diego office, the first things they noticed were the dogs. We can’t blame them — the dogs are so good at welcoming our guests.
We had some new PeopleConnect volunteers for this year’s job shadow. In the week leading up to the event, PeopleConnect employees excitedly prepared to show these 12th graders what they do on a day-to-day basis. On the day of the job shadow, the students were broken up into small groups as they visited each of the volunteers to learn about design, split testing, mobile app development, and front end development.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped with the Job Shadow - Britt, Hanna, Luis, Luke, Dillon, Callie, and Shane. And a special thank you to Gemma and Janet from HR for facilitating the event It takes a whole crew to make this event a success, and we couldn’t have done it without them.
