Kaiser Summer Job Shadow program open for 2020 applications

Graphic of lightbulb and gears The San Juan Unified College & Career Readiness department is accepting applications for the 2020 Kaiser/San Juan Unified Summer Preceptorship (Job Shadow). The district formed an agreement with Kaiser to enroll 10 students in this program. Any current junior enrolled in a San Juan Unified school can apply. Due to the medical nature of the activities, specific immunizations are required. The program takes place at Kaiser facilities over a four-week period during the summer. 

The Kaiser Summer Job Shadow Program places students in workplace learning environments within Kaiser facilities for 20 hours per week for four weeks. Additionally, students attend weekly classes to improve workplace soft skills. More than 13 Kaiser departments participate, and students experience real-life work situations through a rotation-style format. Students are viewed as part of the team. Although the experience is strictly observational, inquiry and discussion with Kaiser medical professionals is expected.

To apply, students must complete an online form. Students must also submit to their high school counseling office the following, gathered in a packet:

  • A copy of the responses from the completed and submitted application form, which will be emailed to applicants
  • A statement, in letter form, addressing reasons why as it pertains to this opportunity
  • A resume
  • A transcript
  • A sealed letter of recommendation

All forms and paperwork must be turned in to the student’s counseling office by Feb. 28, 2020.
