More than 100 students in Rhode Island recently had the chance to learn how classroom skills translate into the workplace during an annual job shadow day presented by Junior Achievement of Rhode Island in conjunction with the Rhode Island Hospitality Education Foundation and Tech Collective.

During the event, students from the Academy for Career Exploration, Cranston Career and Technical Center, Davies Career and Technical High School, Exeter Job Corps Academy and Woonsocket Area Career and Technical Center, met with employees from the Providence Biltmore, the Providence Warwick Convention & Visitors Bureau, GTECH and the R.I. Convention Center to learn about various hospitality and technology roles, and to participate in hands-on training.

“Through JA Job Shadow Day, we hope that students learned that there are many opportunities available to them in hospitality and technology, and that they gained valuable practical experience,” said Lee Lewis, president of Junior Achievement of Rhode Island. “…Through job shadowing, students see the practical applications of classroom lessons carried out by professionals and can connect the importance of schoolwork to their future dreams and aspirations.”
