Build Your Future Workforce

Students need engagement with our employers to explore careers, develop work-ready skills, and imagine a future in ICR IOWA. Here are three ways you can make that difference.

Host an Internship or Job Shadow through Workplace Learning Connection

By offering an internship to a high school student, you are giving them the opportunity to explore a career path and develop their confidence, skills, and connections. Internships can not only help a student develop critical knowledge and skills, but can also help employers build interest in their industry and identify valuable future employees.

 

Job shadows or worksite tours are another great way to get involved with a student’s career exploration process. Job shadows can show students a “day in the life” and see what is expected of a certain career. Worksite tours allow students to ask questions about specific opportunities.
