The BBA’s partner, the Boston Private Industry Council, holds a Job Shadow Day each year. This event is a precursor to the organization’s summer teen employment efforts, which include the BBA Summer Jobs Program featured above.

Five Boston law firms welcomed students from Boston public high schools on March 13th for the PIC’s Annual Job Shadow Day.  In case you missed this post, Job Shadow Day, which serves as a precursor to the citywide teen employment efforts, allows students to shadow professionals during a normal day of work to give them a firsthand look into the skills and education needed to pursue a number of different careers.

Thank you to the following firms for participating in the program:

Hemenway & Barnes LLP
Holland & Knight LLP
Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP
Sullivan & Worcester LLP
Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP

And the best part—all five of these firms have already signed on to the 2015 BBA Summer Jobs Program!
