Career Connect FAQs

Union Public SchoolsHow often will students be on-site?

Student interns may report daily or twice a week for a 1.5-hour block, depending on the company’s needs and student schedules.

Is there a minimum number of students we are required to take?

No. We have had some partners start with 2-3 students, and others
who accommodate 18-20 students.

Who provides transportation?

In most cases, the students drive. Union Public Schools has provided buses or arranged for alternate transportation in some instances. Partner companies have also offset transportation costs by donating gas cards. One partner even purchased a 15-passenger van.

Do I have to pay the students?

No. We have some partner companies who choose to pay an hourly wage, but the majority of our partners do not pay students. It is considered a job shadowing experience.

Are student interns covered by insurance?

Yes, Junior Achievement covers students with a $1 million liability policy.

What if a student is not working out?

If a student is not a good fit, you may contact the Career Connect office. The arrangement must be mutually beneficial for the student and the company.

Native American Heritage Month

Native American Heritage Month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.
