Technology employers wanted for job shadow program

B.C. technology employers, both private and public, are invited to welcome science-oriented Grade 11 and 12 students in a job shadowing experience, as part of Year of Science activities arranged by B.C.’s Applied Science Technologists and Technicians.

The organization’s members and their employers hope to attract math-and-science-minded secondary students to a huge array of applied science careers.

“Our job shadowing experiences let interested students spend a day visiting workplaces of scientists, technologists and technicians, to explore their own career futures,” said John Leech, ASTTBC executive director. “What are the coming opportunities, training requirements, the day-to-day work and the pay and benefits of technology and science careers right where they live?”

Students who qualify for the program, offered between March and June, will be notified of science and technology job-shadow opportunities by their Grade 11 and 12 teachers.

Companies and government offices considering hosting day-long job shadow experiences are urged to visit

Shadowing opportunities can be listed online, through Scott Tilley at 1-604-741-0803 or e-mail
