Fidelity Job Shadow

Written by allysonfletch on . Posted in Community, JA High School Programs

Fidelity Investments in Salt Lake hosted a Junior Achievement Job Shadow event for 45 students from West High School. Students were engaged in hands-on activities taught by Fidelity employees and learned financial and career concepts including saving money early, social media do’s and don’ts, the importance of learning all they can about IT and the importance of education beyond high school. John Hall, Senior Director at Fidelity, was thrilled to present to students at the event opening; he a third generation West High graduate!

JA Job Shadow is a hands-on program where organizations invite high school students to their place of business to the spend the day learning about not only the organization as a whole, but the variety of job and career opportunities available within that organization. They also share with the students the skills and education required to obtain those careers. This unique opportunity opens students eyes to the many possibilities available and exposes them to careers that they may not have realized were possible. JA Job Shadow is truly an interactive and fun opportunity for students to start thinking about their futures.

Thank to all those at Fidelity who participated. Fidelity continues to give back to the communities where its employees work and live.  The company has a strong commitment to education, particularly in financial education and we appreciate their time and effort in providing such valuable experiences for our students. #FidelityCares
