Career X Program
Our CareerX Program gives our high schoolers the chance to work alongside experts in a variety of immersive professional environments. These opportunities, designed in partnership with various leading companies in the city, allow our students to gain exposure, hone their skills, and make real contributions in work environments that support growth and development.
In the past, our students have benefited from immersive explorations at a fashion design house, a leading law firm, an innovative architectural firm, and much more.
To learn more about the opportunities on offer this year, or if you would like to partner with us to offer hands-on professional experiences, please contact Ms. Jodie Sovak.
Please note that CareerX opportunities occur during our fall, winter, spring, and summer breaks.
You will have a primary contact both at AISC and at your workplace.
At AISC, Ms. Soyeon, Ms. Sherene, and/or Ms. Jodie will meet with you to discuss your interests and strengths and will help to set up a suitable placement. AISC uses its database of partner organizations for CareerX placements, and we are always adding to it. Students are placed based on interest and qualification.
At work, you will have a supervisor that you report to. This will be the person that assigns tasks to you and will make sure that you are given an orientation to the company, introduce you to other staff members, etc. If ever you have questions about your workplace or assignment expectations, this is the first person you should ask.
Please note, parents will not be communicating with CareerX partner supervisors. Any parent concerns should be directed to the AISC contact that has been assigned. One of the most valuable opportunities we are giving to students is teaching them how to navigate the workplace culture. The AISC primary contact is always available to help students navigate any issues that come up.
