Junior Achievement helps with career exploration
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Kids grow up being asked, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" The answer can get more complex as children get older and start thinking about what it's really like to be a firefighter or an engineer and what it takes to get there. During the month of March, 4,000 local eighth-graders will get a first hand look at careers as over 100 companies open their doors for Junior Achievement's career exploration days. Jeff Brokamp, vice-president of education at Junior Achievement and two students, Ty'ron Little, who job-shadowed with JA last year and Eliza West who will be going job-shadowing at the YMCA in Burlington talk about their experiences.
