EDC links students to career opportunities across region

May 25, 2016

In collaboration with San Diego County College and Career Readiness Consortium and Mayor Faulconer’s One San Diego 100 initiative, EDC is working to create and provide work-based learning opportunities across the region to help develop and retain San Diego’s talent. With opportunities including job shadows, company tours, industry panels and access to internships, students gain exposure to our region’s diverse career opportunities.  

This quarter, EDC coordinated day-long job shadows at various organizations throughout San Diego including The Control Group, San Diego Union Tribune, Cox Communications, SAIC, Ethertronics Inc. and the FBI.

Check out the students’ experience at video production company Scratch Media and broadcast news station CW6:

Together, in collaboration with East County EDC, Junior Achievement and Cleantech San Diego, more than 1,600 young people have been provided industry exposure experience through job shadowing.
