Ximedica Hosts Junior Achievement Job Shadow Day
On Wednesday, October 5th Ximedica hosted 21 students from the Chariho Career & Technical Center for a Junior Achievement Job Shadow Day at our Providence office.
Junior Achievement of Rhode Island serves to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy. Junior Achievement is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs, and their legacy is for all youth to be given access to opportunity and success.
While at Ximedica, the ninth graders were treated to a tour of the facility and participated in a brainstorming activity. They also met with several members of our team including Human Factors engineers, industrial designers, manufacturing engineers, and design assurance engineers, to name a few. It was a great day of learning and we were happy to hear many of the students are now interested in pursuing a career in the medtech industry!
