Virtual JA Job Shadow Overview
Below you will find the overview for the virtual JA Job Shadow at Crestone Capital. During the next few hours, you should complete steps 1 and 2. You should watch at least TWO videos from step 3, but JA encourages you to watch all Deep Dive videos. Lastly, check out some of the supporting documents that Crestone has provided.
Before starting any of the videos, you should open your virtual JA Job Shadow Student Guide. This is where you can take notes throughout these videos and take the most away from this experience. For this event, please complete the full student guide document. The only section that should be skipped over is called “Scenario Challenge.” Remember – if you hear any terms or words that you are not familiar with, write those down! You can then review the additional documents the company has sent over to see if they cover those words you don’t know. If they don’t, it is your turn to do your own research!
Now let’s get started!
