As we see each year, the day visiting companies is truly inspiring, eye-opening and can be transformational for students. One shared that his greatest lesson learned was, "Now I know why chemistry is so important!" and another student walking out of Travelers proclaimed, "Travelers is my dream job!" A meaningful day outside of the classroom is truly worthwhile for those reactions! Read on for the full recap of Job Shadow Day 2017, and see a picture slideshow.
