A taste of the real world

Job shadowing event helped Milford students

Prudential Annuities recently brought the classroom to the office when the Shelton-based company acted as host to three students from the Milford. Three local students, Amanda Gieb, Kathryn Amenta and Mark Dillman, were paired with Prudential Annuities’ associates in various departments to experience how the skills they learn in the classroom can be applied to the real world, according to a statement.
Executives shared the importance of education and intellectual curiosity, as well as finding careers that fulfill their passions, the statement said. This was Prudential Annuities’ first year of participation in the effort.
