"Career Explorations": An IBM Outreach Program for High School Students and "From College To Career": An IBM Outreach Program for College Students.
Shapiro, Ronald G.
The "Career Explorations" and "From College To Career" programs are both evening outreach programs in which sons and daughters of IBM employees are invited to the IBM Somers location to learn about careers and preparing for the job market. All sessions feature IBM employee presenters talking about the work they do. The "Career Explorations" program is intended for high school students in grades 9 through 12 and runs during an academic year. Neighboring high schools are invited to partner with us in this program by identifying additional students (not sons and daughters of IBM employees) that would benefit from such a program and coordinating their students' participation. The "From College To Career" program is intended for college students who are home for the summer months. Additionally, co-op students in the area for the summer months are also invited to participate. This paper outlines both the "Career Explorations" and the "From College To Careers" programs and provides a "How To" guide for others wanting to initiate such a program. (JDM)
