Career Connect



The Union Career Connect program provides students the opportunity to explore a variety of careers while still in high school, thus leading to more informed post-graduation decisions and more engagement between students and elective coursework.

Union Career Connect serves as a bridge for students interested in receiving training while still in high school which allows them to pursue a career and/or specialized career training upon graduation. Students enroll in one of the Career Connect classes as an elective through Union High School and then are placed in career internships or service roles according to their interests. 

Students complete coursework to fulfill an academic component within the program. For example, Union’s manufacturing pathway allows students to complete coursework with a Tulsa Community College instructor. The Automotive Technicians Program has on-line Ford Training curriculum.  Service Learning students complete a structured written reflection tying service experience back to specific learning goals.

For Students

Enrolling in Career Connect can help you make the most of your education and experience at Union High School. See below details or visit the College/Career Center for information about how to enroll.

Service Learning
and Job Shadow

Students can use 1-2 elective class periods a day to perform community service or participate in job shadowing within the community. Students are placed, based on their interests, in a wide variety of business and industry. Examples include dental offices, veterinarian clinics, marketing firms, attorney offices, architect and accounting firms, just to name a few. Please contact a Career Advisor for more information.


Job Out 

Students who work can be approved to leave campus 6th hour (2:20-3:20) to attend a paid working position. Students, not business partners need to arrange for Job Out. For more information, contact Glenn Howard

For Business
​and Community Partners

Union’s Career Connect program cannot happen without the support and participation of numerous local businesses and community organizations. The College/Career Center is continuously looking for new partnerships that will expand the types of internships and opportunities available to students. Our business partners have found that being a part of Career Connect not only gives them the sense of satisfaction that comes from giving back and investing in our students, but also provides an opportunity for them to grow their talent and workforce, recruit highly capable and trained personnel, and increase productivity in their workplace. 

If your business or community organization would like to explore ways to partner with Union’s Career Connect program, please reach out to the College and Career Center staff to schedule a time to hear more about these valuable opportunities.

On Site Job Interviews

Business partners can schedule a block of time 1-3 hours, where they set up an informational booth in our College & Career Center.  In the past, companies have held on site interviews for interested students, or just had information and resources to distribute.
