Approximately 60-70 students took time out of their schedule during those two days to job shadow at different businesses.
The job shadowing is part of the Orientation to Life and Career class through the Family And Consumer Sciences department at NHS.
Teacher Michelle Burk has taught the class for several years and said students, in general, earn a better idea of what life is like in the workforce, especially after the job shadowing session.
"The objective is when they leave the classroom, it will help the students pursue a career," Burk said, "and that they are prepared and have the skills to be successful."
Prior to job shadowing, students do mock interviews and research a specific career before presenting the information to the class.
During the end of the semester, students have the opportunity to job shadow their career choice, where they get to spend a day finding out "what the job is really about," Burk said.
"It's a great class," she said. "The kids get a lot out of it."
Following the shadowing session, students offer a PowerPoint presentation to the class to show what they have learned.
"They learn a lot," Burk said. "A lot of them have an idea of what the career is going to be, but the first-hand experience is important.
"A lot of times, it affirms what they want to do. This gives them validation of, 'Yes, this is what I want to do.'"
The elective class is offered to all the students at the school.
Sixteen-year-old Dannyelle Mattox, a freshman at Northview and the daughter of Dan and Emily Mattox, spent Wednesday job shadowing at The Brazil Times.
She has been interested in life as a journalist since she was a fifth-grader at Meridian Elementary School.
"It's really fun," Dannyelle said.
