Job Shadow Provides Real Local Experiences

Thank you to Eureka Payments owner and C.E.O. Ken Musante for hosting a Job Shadow for Desert Ahana.  Desert is interested in owning her own business someday and she was able to experience a full afternoon with Ken and his staff and also attend a Eureka Chamber of Commerce Executive Committee meeting.  This photo shows Ken, Desert, and chamber Executive Director Don Smullin.  We appreciate all community members who host student job shadows.

Thanks to the U.S. Marshall's office and Deputy Brad Gill for hosting Dylan Diemer for a Job Shadow.  Dylan is interested in law enforcement, and thanks to his connection with Deputy Gill, he likely will get to meet with an FBI agent next.  We appreciate all community members who host students for a Job Shadow experience.

Thank you to Morris School third grade teacher Jenny Knox for hosting a recent student Job Shadow




Thank you to Dr. Brad Tucker and the Tucker & Tucker DDS staff for hosting a recent Arcata High School student Job Shadow.  The Job Shadow program is a great way for students to learn first hand about different jobs and careers.



Thank you to Lieutenant Commander Kelly Deutermann and the USCG Air Station McKinleyville for hosting Sophomore Elizabeth Uemura for a Job Shadow.  Elizabeth has a goal of attending the Coast Guard Academy and was able to learn on site at the air station about this awesome career.

Call for Job Shadow hosts!

There is an old quote, often attributed to Buddha that says, "If you light a lamp for someone it will also brighten your own path." Serving as a Job Shadow host does just that. It lets an Arcata High School student learn about your job or career, while you benefit from being a mentor.  Serving as a Job Shadow host is only a commitment of from two hours to one full day, but it can have a lasting impact by giving a student the chance to get a practical, real-world look at what a job involves. Please join us as a host this year. Call Career & College Center Coordinator Jim Ritter at 498-2917 for more information.
