For Students: Current Job Postings
Resuming in the Fall of 2015 at Tahoma High School:
A job shadow is a great opportunity for THS seniors to learn more about a career and a chance to practice interacting with adults in a professional setting. If you are interested in hosting a Tahoma senior for a four hour job shadow, please click on the link below. Your contact information will be added to the THS Job Shadow Resource List. This list is monitored by the THS Career Counselor and is NOT made public to the students. Before giving your contact information to a student, the THS Career Counselor will screen the student to make sure he/she has an interest in your career area.
Career Spotlight Presentations
Business members who are passionate about their career are invited to do a 30 minute presentation at the high school. Please complete the Career Spotlight form below and you will be contacted during the school year to schedule a presentation date.
