Work Experiences

Work-based learning, or work experiences, are ways you can try working, learn new skills and get some experience.  Having a variety of work experiences while you are in high school can help you:

  • learn what you are good at
  • find out more about yourself and what jobs or careers are a good fit for you and your talents
  • get work experience and learn new skills

Work experiences can occur at a workplace, in school, or in the community.

In the training we will explore different types of work experiences including:

  • Apprenticeships
  • Job Shadowing
  • Career Mentorship
  • Informational Interviews
  • Internships – Paid or Unpaid
  • Part-Time Jobs
  • Service Learning
  • Student-led Enterprises
  • Simulated Workplace Experience
  • Volunteering
