SAP Job Shadow field trip – April 14, 2015
Through the Junior Achievement program students visited SAP, one of the largest software development companies in the world at the local South San Francisco offices. They were given a tour of the company, learning about and seeing the atmosphere of the company’s work environment. Students learned about the various types of social media, how to use it for their benefit and what to be aware of. Mentors had everyone write a brief description about themselves and then they were put in a job interview situation. This was a very important and fun experience!
Attendees L to R:
Daisy Orozco, Athziry Molina, Darren Pangan, Yacoub Atshan, Alexis Alfaro-Jimenez, Andres Abea, Daniel Perez & Catherine (SAP mentor)
Thank you to SAP and Junior Achievement!
