JGG Students participate in online session with industry professionals

JGG Students participate in online session with industry professionals

Jobs for Georgia Graduates students(JGG) at Chattooga have been chosen to participate in a pilot program with AT&T and Nepris. The Nepris organization links industry experts with the classroom and allows students to have an online live learning session with professionals in various industries. In the sessions experts from various industries discuss topics of interest with students. The teacher requests a session based on what is being discussed in the classroom. The JGG adviser at CHS is Kristy Colbert.

Colbert stated, “We have completed two sessions. The first was on business etiquette. Sean Ciesielka of Mondelez Corporation (a subsidiary of Wrigley Gum) met with students on October 30th via webcam to discuss business etiquette. Then, on December 11th, we met with John Morgan with BlueCross BlueShield of Alabama to discuss identifying strengths and weaknesses. Sessions range from 30 mins to an hour with a debriefing session following. I really am thankful to be one of the JGG programs chosen for these unique learning opportunities. I feel that my students are greatly benefiting from hearing first hand information from industry professionals who are looking to hire students.”
