Career Sampling Sessions

Throughout the year, prospective students have several opportunities to spend time observing the various jobs for which EGTI is providing training. During a two-day Career Sampling Session, interested participants will have opportunities to shadow an employee on each job and perform portions of the job. This will assist both EGTI staff and the participants as they determine which training programs are right for them.

A Career Sampling Session is for EGTI staff and participants only (interpreters are scheduled as needed). This is an opportunity for EGTI staff to observe and work with each participant to gain insight on each participant’s skillset. Because of this, behavioral consultants, waiver support staff, parents, etc. may not attend the Career Sampling Session alongside the participant.

Both days begin at 9 a.m. EST and end at 4 p.m. EST. Once a participant is dropped off, parents may choose to leave the hotel or occupy their time in the hotel’s lobby. Parents must be back for pick up by 4 p.m. EST.

Participants will need money for lunch both days as they will eat together. Please be sure to have money at the time of drop-off.

On day one of the Career Sampling Session, EGTI staff will hold an informational discussion for parents from 9 to 10 a.m. EST for those who would like to attend.

The starting location for both days will be EGTI. Participants will spend their time rotating between Courtyard Muncie, Thr3e Wise Men, and IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital (IUHBMH). To travel to IUHBMH, participants will walk a few blocks to the MITS station to catch a bus. Please consider the weather and dress accordingly. If it is raining, please come with an umbrella.

Participants may opt to book and pay for a room at the hotel to stay overnight or, if within driving distance, may travel to and from EGTI both days.
