Junior Achievement of New York (JANY) has announced a marathon week of high-profile executive “Dream Job Shadow” activities leading up to the Tenth Annual National JA Groundhog Job Shadow Day, to be held on Friday, February 2nd (Groundhog Day), kicking off the organization’s highly successful, year-round JA Job Shadow Program Students shadow business professionals in the workplace to learn about various career options. This year, JANY’s 2007 Dream Job Shadow Week will expose hundreds of NYC and Long Island students to rare opportunities to be mentored by top “movers & shakers” in the business world. Companies around NYC and Long Island will help students make connections between the skills they study in school and success at work. Almost 700 students will spend time with business leaders, media executives, civic leaders and other professionals.
“Groundhog Job Shadow Day allows students to listen, observe and understand day-to-day activities at a variety of workplaces and opens up new career opportunities and avenues of success,” said JANY President, Doug Schallau.
