LISD Career Out for Businesses
We are looking for companies in and around Lewisville ISD to sign up to VIRTUALLY host junior and senior LISD students for this exciting one-day, three-hour job shadowing experience. This is a great opportunity to showcase your business, find potential summer workers or interns, and help shape the future workforce.
When? Friday, March 26th | 8:30-11:15 AM
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.
Session 1: 8:30-9:45 AM
Session 2: 10:00-11:15 AM
Content during session 1 and 2 can be the same or different - whatever works for your business! Each session will have a different set of students participating.
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 virtual tour of your workplace)
Share “what a typical day looks like” for a particular career
Incorporate actual work when possible - screen sharing will be available
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.
