Job Shadow Program

Skaneateles High School Job Shadow Program 

Mrs. GiGi Michel- 315.291.2327 and Mrs. Elizabeth Zysk- 315-291-2326

At Skaneateles High School, students are encouraged to explore careers in any way possible...through parents and family friends, special programs and courses, and actual job shadowing arranged through school. The key: EXPLORE!  Test things out. Step out of a traditional school day. Talk to people and various careers. Think about your skills and interest. Imagine yourself in the future. 
Throughout the pandemic the Job Shadow Program explored new and exciting virtual career opportunities. Mrs. Michel teamed up with high schools in the area to offer a wide variety of virtual speakers in different types of careers and fields of interest.  Please see the link below for more information on speakers. Also students take advantage of Naviance to career explore! Naviance is college and career ready software that provides students with college planning and career assessment tools. The goal is for students to gain a better understanding of their field of interest and familiarize themselves with potential careers he / she may not have known existed. In addition to exploring details on various careers, this program provides a list of colleges that offer majors related to those careers. Each student and parent / guardian in the high school has access to Naviance.
