CCV’s INT 1520 - Exploratory Workplace Experience

A Work Based Learning ILO - Second Semester

Looking to earn three FREE college credits while exploring career options or through an internship?

Next semester Mr. Finley will be teaching CCV’s INT 1520 - Exploratory Workplace Experience. This class will be taught right here at RUHS in the Innovation Center for students looking to explore a career and connect that to post-secondary planning through real-world experience in a workplace setting.

Students will design a field study that, depending on the student’s goals, be a combination of Job Shadows and Informational Interviews or potentially a semester-long placement in an Internship or paid Co-op.

With Mr. Finley, students will explore and practice the skills necessary for professional effectiveness, how to research careers, perform job searches, write cover letters and resumes, practice interviewing techniques, and consider next steps in pursuing a career.

If you are interested, see Kara or Bev to learn more!

The course will consist of 15 hours of class time and requires 80 hours in the field.
