Career Connect FAQs


How often will students be on-site?

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

Is there a minimum number of students a business partner is required to take?

No! The Career Connect program has some partners start with 1-3 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.  This program 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.
