Job shadowing give students the opportunity to see the realities of a profession or industry and the connections between learning and the real world. Chris C., a student from Maplewood High School, participated in a job shadow with the Tennessee Titans. In this post, Chris writes about his experiences.
My name is Chris and I go to Maplewood High School. Recently, I was given the amazing opportunity to job shadow the General Manager of the Tennessee Titans, Ruston Webster. I learned some valuable information from Mr. Webster, as well as his crew, such as advice on what to study for in college, how much work ethic I should have to get to that point, and what career pathways to go after. I will use the experience to help develop myself as a student, a person, and a future businessman. This experience was truly life-changing and overwhelming. I never wanted it to be over. I will most definitely use the passion and determination this experience has given me to excel in life post-academically.
Thank you to Mr.Webster and the Titans organization.
