LISD Career Out for Businesses
Friday, March 3rd | 8:30-11:30 AM
We are looking for companies in the DFW area to host junior and senior LISD students for an exciting one-day, three-hour job shadowing experience. Job shadowing for 2023 will be in-person and students will provide their own transportation to the job site. This is a great opportunity to showcase your business, find potential summer workers or interns, shape the future workforce, and engage your employees with a volunteer opportunity.
Host one or more students at your place of business for the entire 3 hours. You can opt to require masks if necessary to have students on site.
Time with students can be structured any way that works for your company. Some ideas are listed below.
Give a company overview (this can include a tour of your workplace either virtually or in-person)
Share what a typical day looks like for one or more careers
Incorporate actual work when possible
Share the education background and specific classes that were important for your college major, degree or certificate
Have open dialogue and Q&A time with students about your line of work
Showcase one or more careers that are important to your business
Tell students why you love what you do
Consider incorporating anything that will help students make informed career decisions while they are still in high school.
Prior to attending Career Out, our students will attend mandatory training on proper business conduct. Topics will include professional dress, appropriate business communication, use of technology, and proper conduct in a business/virtual environment.
How do companies participate?
Step 1: Register before Friday, January 20, 2023.
Step 2: One contact from each company needs to complete the LISD Background Check form found here.
Step 3: Begin thinking about what you want students to learn during job shadowing. Invite other team members to help, if applicable.
