Business students take part in a job shadow experience
Nearly 20 Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk business students got a taste of what it’s like to be an Albany County Sheriff. On April 25, the Business Law and Career & Financial Management classes participated in a Junior Achieve Job Shadow with the officers in Clarksville.
While meeting with sheriffs, the K9 unit, corrections officers, EMT and communication dispatch, students developed a better understanding of the community and emergency services careers offered through the Sheriff’s office, the duties, responsibilities and skills necessary to succeed in each career, the impact that their education and interests will have on their pursuit of future careers.
“The job shadow experience provided by Investigator Praisner and his colleagues at the Albany County Sheriff’s Department was an awesome experience,” teacher Jo Ann Baylis said. “Students were very interested in the presentations and spoke about our visit days later.”
Business teacher Antoinette Randall added “I truly appreciate the employees of the Albany County Sheriff’s Office sharing their time and knowledge with my students.”
