Goochland High School’s Career and Technical Education Department and Junior Achievement of Central Virginia are pleased to offer two exciting virtual job shadowing opportunities for GHS’s student body.
Featured business partners: Hourigan-A Fully Integrated Construction/Development Firm and the Richmond Flying Squirrels.
Date and Time: February 19th (Hourigan) and 24th (Richmond Flying Squirrels) at 11:00 am via Zoom.
What to Expect: Each session will last 45 minutes. During this time, business partners will provide a company overview, values, and what makes their company unique. Additionally, they will provide an overview of the different departments and positions available at their respective companies, as well as their workplace culture. Each session will also include a presentation from Human Resources and a virtual company tour. There will be time for Q&A at the end of each session, and students will be encouraged to ask questions during the informational interviews. A list of potential questions will be provided to students prior to each session, along with instructions on how to join the Zoom link. This opportunity is free of charge and open to GHS students, and area high schools as well.
Potential for School Closure Due to Weather Conditions and/or Power Outages: If GCPS is closed or delayed the virtual job shadow will be postponed. If GCPS is open, the event may still be postponed, because other school divisions will be participating, and their potential closures or delays would result in the cancellation of the virtual job shadow. Thus, Junior Achievement will provide timely updates, which GHS will post to Schoology.
