Job Shadow Opportunities
Kent Intermediate Career Readiness Events

Kent ISD has put together a list of upcoming career readiness opportunities in the area. We encourage you to attend as there are a lot of unique opportunities for students to plug in and explore their careers of interest.

The Talk & Tour Series is a evening career exploration program designed to increase awareness of diverse careers available in high demand career sectors.

Through an informal “talk show style” format, a panel of professionals in select industries will share their own career path, the inside scoop on what their jobs are really like, along with their perspective on what you can do to prepare for a career you are interested in. This is your chance to ask questions, get valuable career information and take a valuable step in figuring out your own career direction. A tour of the host site will provided, with a special focus on seeing the latest technology and innovation happening in the workplace. Each month a new industry/segment/topic will be highlighted.

Kent Career Technical Center

Kent Career Technical Center (or KCTC) is a great resource for exploring careers.


All CCHS students are set up with a Xello account that allows them to explore careers, colleges, college majors, and more. Our counselor(s) will lead students through personality, skills, learning style, and career matchmaking assessments in 9th and 10th grade.  Students can redo assessments and further explore during one of our Xello Focus Period offerings.  Students can access their Xello account through the GCCS Bookmarks on their Chromebook.

We welcome a variety of individuals to speak about their career and career journey in a Focus Period throughout the school year.  Students should watch and sign up for opportunities to learn more about engineering, nursing, entrepreneurship, etc.!
