As part of the West Hartford JA Career Walk, students from Conard High
School, Hall High School, and Kingswood-Oxford School visited BlumShapiro
and other businesses throughout West Hartford Center. BlumShapiro offered
students an office tour as well as a discussion of the types of professionals
the firms employs and qualities firm leaders seek during the hiring process.
During their walk through West Hartford Center, students visited a variety of
establishments, including accounting, banking, finance, marketing, retail, and
food and beverage.
The JA Career Walk was created in 2014 by BlumShapiro, PBI Financial, and
Junior Achievement of Southwest New England to help prepare students for
choosing a potential career by gaining a better understanding of opportuni-
ties available in their own communities. Since the program's inception, JA
Career Walks have been held in New Haven and Avon, and one is planned for
Hartford this year.
