Traditional job shadows bring students to the workplace. JA Reverse Job Shadow brings the workplace to students!

Tables lined the perimeter of DuPont Middle School’s gym on March 12. Professionals in careers from banking to surveying had set up displays and eagerly awaited the hundreds of students about to fill the gym to learn about the various jobs and career fields.

Students were split into groups and spent about three and a half minutes at each table before rotating. They learned about education and training requirements, salaries, the pros and cons of different jobs and had a great time interacting with the individuals representing various companies here in Jacksonville.
