Linda Parker

My position in the Career Connect program is to oversee placement and supervise the success of students in the Job Shadowing and Service Learning components of the program. Students receive on the job training as they learn more about a career interest.

The Union Career Connect program provides students the opportunity to explore a variety of careers while still in high school, thus leading to more informed post-graduation decisions and to more engagement between students and elective coursework.  

Union Career Connect also serves as a bridge for students interested in receiving training while still in high school which allows them to pursue a career and/or specialized career training upon graduation.  Students enroll in service learning as an elective through Union High School and then are placed in career internships or service roles according to their interests.  Students also complete a variety of coursework to fulfill an academic component within the program
