COOL Week This Week

Skillpoint will once again participate in this week’s Leander and Cedar Park ISDs’ COOL Week, which stands for Career Opportunities On Location. It is a week long, unpaid, project-based internship available to senior students each spring. Skillpoint has hosted students during COOL Week for more than half a decade. This year, three wonderful high school seniors will be hosted at Skillpoint’s office.

 

According to Leander ISD representative Pat Pewthers, “This [COOL Week] is the culmination of the Leander ISD Career Development System where students choose a Career Passport their freshman year and take classes to support that “major” during their high school career.”

 

COOL Week includes a mock job interview and application process, followed by a mock employee orientation. A bit of job shadowing is followed by a team project and a presentation given by the students of the results of that project on the last day of COOL Week.

Skillpoint looks forward to having three high school students in our midst this week and hope this week is a learning experience for us all!
