Job shadowing opportunity for CMS students

Today, job shadowing can be a fundamental tool to the success of attaining employment - especially for graduates.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students from James Martin Middle and Vance High will have the opportunity Thursday to hear from officials at TIAA-CREF, a leading financial services organization in Charlotte.

In collaboration with CMS and UNC Charlotte, along with Communities In Schools, TIAA-CREF President and CEO Roger Ferguson and President and Executive Vice President of Diversified Financial Services Gene Flood, will offer advice to students.

Students will also experience a financial services job shadowing with TIAA-CREF employees representing departments such as sales, marketing, client services, product management and technology and operations.

For more information or to attend, contact Ken Luck at 704-988-1068 or email
