About Career Connect
Career Connect is designed to give juniors and seniors the opportunity to learn through real-world experience. Union High School students enroll in an elective class and are placed in career internships or community service roles tailored to their particular interests. The program allows students to explore potential careers before graduation, helping them to make more informed decisions about their future.
Our students also have the opportunity to earn college credit and technical certifications (depending upon their area of interest) while still in high school. Paid internships and summer jobs are even available within some programs.* After graduation, many students will attend college or seek other specialized career training because of their experience with Career Connect, and a number of Union students have successfully transitioned to full-time employment with Union’s Career Connect partners.
*Career Connect partners are not required to pay student interns, but it is an option.
Industry Partner Requirements
