County Prep Students Participate in a Job Shadowing Event at Wiley & Sons

On Tuesday, May 14, County Prep students participated in a Job Shadowing event at Wiley & Sons located in Hoboken, New Jersey sponsored by Junior Achievement.  Upon arrival, Mr. Wiley welcomed the students and spoke about the history of Wiley & Sons which is an educational publishing firm that offers an array of educational products. The students participated in several interactive workshops including Personal Finance Trivia – How Financially Literate Are You?, Positioning Yourself for Success Vision Board Activity, Employment Opportunities within Wiley, and Digital Management & the Next Generation of WileyPlus. The Wiley & Sons employees shared their personal experiences as to their expected and yet unexpected career trajectories.   Students interacted with employees in a Wiley Panel Discussion to seek advice and guidance in preparation for their  post-secondary aspirations.  The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and now have an increased awareness of potential career pathways within Wiley & Sons.  A special thank-you is extended to Ms. Ashe, Ms. Fedele, and Ms Rubio for preparing their students for the program and chaperoning the event.
