Job Shadow DayTech Apprentice BreakfastMock InterviewsCareer Speakers
Job Shadow Day
JANUARY:
You and your company have the opportunity to provide a local teen with a firsthand look at the skills and knowledge required to succeed in a career.

Signing up for Job Shadow Day demonstrates a commitment to supporting and improving the community. Individual hosts benefit from the satisfaction that comes with mentoring a young person and introducing him or her to a new career.

  • PIC career specialists work directly with students to prepare them for the experience through a series of career readiness workshops.
  • When you sign up, the PIC will e-mail you a brief “host’s guide” that includes suggested activities to help structure the event.
  • You simply provide a brief job description to help PIC staff match with student career interests.

Tech Apprentice Breakfast

Mock Interviews
APRIL:
In preparation for the summer jobs program, BostonPIC hosts Mock Interview Week during April school vacation with employer volunteers from around the city.

Mock interviews give students the opportunity to practice interviewing and sharpen their interpersonal skills in a professional setting. Employers donate their experience and two-hours of their time to significantly improve a student’s chance of landing a summer job. Each two-hour mock interview session is coordinated to fit employer schedules.

If you have experience interviewing potential candidates, this is a great opportunity to assist students.

Career Speakers
YEAR ROUND:
Throughout the school year, the Boston Private Industry Council coordinates opportunities for local professionals to share their career stories with Boston Public School classes. Career Speakers inspire students and provide valuable guidance for students who are just beginning to imagine their own career paths.

The length of the presentation is up to you. Whatever your interests and time constraints, the PIC staff can work with you and the school to design the most effective and convenient approach.
