Job Shadow Day | Connecting Students & Employers
Tuesday, May 14, 2019
Sitting in a math class was a struggle for Domingo Setien. What did it matter if a calculation was slightly off? If an answer was close enough, why worry? Fast forward several decades and the namesake of Setien and Associates, a Schertz metal fabricator, stood in front of a group of students on explaining how it wasn’t until he was setting a plate at his first job that it clicked. Being just an inch off in his work now means that intricate metal ladder his team just built might not fit. He, like many students participating in this year’s Job Shadow Day event, benefited from seeing how his education connected with the working world as he started his career. This personal story was just one shared by hosting companies throughout Job Shadow Day 2019.
