Bensalem High School students job shadow at local credit union
TREVOSE, PA (June 3, 2014) — Three Bensalem High School students spent the day job shadowing the accounting staff at TruMark Financial® Credit Union on May 28. Students observed staff accountants prepare checks for bill payment, review financial statements, and analyze budget forecasts. The accounting staff shared their educational background, work experience, and job responsibilities with the students.
Job shadowing provides a richer experience than reading a job description or interviewing an employee about his or her work. Students see individuals actually perform the job. It’s an ideal way for students to determine if a career is right for them. The job shadowing day is a component of TruMark Financial’s ongoing financial literacy program, seeking to teach students basic money management skills.
