Career Exploration

EDUHSD Career Website

EDUHSD Career Website

The College & Career Centers at the four comprehensive high schools in the El Dorado Union High School District have joined forces to offer a FREE resource for students seeking employment and/or career development opportunities in El Dorado County.
This website will assist students in connecting with local businesses and organizations in our community that offer employment, internships, job shadows, and volunteer opportunities for current and graduated EDUHSD students. The website will be live year-round and will be updated regularly as new opportunities become available.
It is our privilege to introduce the brand new EDUHSD Career Website!

Job Shadows & Internships

Job Shadows & Internships

Go For It!
Students interested in a job shadow are encouraged to drop by the Career Center & pick up an application. Screening includes attendance, grades, discipline, and teacher/counselor recommendation. Apply early, job shadows take weeks to arrange.
An internship is like a job shadow, only it's over an extended period of time. They can be either paid or unpaid, and it looks great on your resume! Not many internships are available in our community - stop by the Career Center to inquire.
Community members & parents who are interested in exploring the idea of hosting a job shadow or internship in their workplace are encouraged to contact the Career Center.

Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB)
