Job Shadow Day, March 2017
What is Job Shadow Day?
Job Shadow Day is a day local restaurants, hotels and businesses come together to offer ProStart® students the opportunity to gain a real-world view of the industry. This four (4) hour experience includes:
Who are ProStart® students?
High school students studying culinary arts and hospitality management. The IRA Educational Foundation partners with schools to offer programming and opportunities to expose these students in the restaurant industry. ProStart® students have a vested interest in the industry and have had work-based learning experiences. Students are prepared to move on and succeed in college or a career in the industry.
How can ProStart® students participating in Job Shadow Day help my business?
ProStart® students want to work in the industry. Many ProStart® students have their sanitation certificate and have been trained in customer service. Students have benefited from direct exposure to the industry through Job Shadows, Field Trips, Job Readiness Training, and Chef mentors/ demonstrations. Their daily program and curriculum at school, along with the added opportunities, has prepared students to be a part of a variety of elements to the food-service industry.
