Career Out

  • Career Out Logo LISD Career Out for Businesses

    We are looking for companies in and around Lewisville ISD to sign up to host junior and senior LISD students for an exciting one-day, three-hour job shadowing experience. Job shadowing for 2022 will be EITHER virtual OR in-person. 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.

    When? Friday, March 4th | 8:30-11:15 AM 

    VIRTUAL CAREER OUT

    What? Host 1 or more students virtually through Webex.  Lewisville ISD will provide all of the virtual setup.  

    We ask that businesses host two virtual sessions during the timeframe. Each session will have a different set of students participating. Content during session 1 and 2 can be the same or different - whatever works for your business!

    • Session 1: 8:30-9:45 AM

    • Session 2: 10:00-11:15 AM

    IN-PERSON CAREER OUT

    What? 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

    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.
