Career Sampling Session
October 17, 2019 @ 9:00 am - October 18, 2019 @ 4:00 pm$25
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 skill set. Because of this, behavioral consultants, waiver support staff, parents, etc. may not attend the Career Sampling Session alongside the participant.
Participants will be provided a copy of both their self and vocational skill assessment at the end of the two days. The purpose of these assessments is to assist participants, parents, teacher, Vocational Rehabilitation counselor, etc. in determining which training program is the right fit based on interest and skill set.
*Participants must be the age of 14 or older.
Participants will be charged a non-refundable $25 fee at the time of registration, which will cover the cost of lunch during the two days. Should a participant cancel or fail to show up, they will forfeit the $25.
Both days begin at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m.
Once the student is dropped off, parents may choose to leave the hotel or occupy their time in the hotel’s lobby. Parents must be back at 4 p.m. to pick-up their student.
On day 1 of the career sampling session, EGTI staff will hold an informational session from 9 to 10 a.m. for those who would like to attend. This will take place in a meeting room within the hotel.
