Hoover Information Technology Academy Students Visit Qualcomm

AOIT At Qualcomm
Sophomores from the Academy of Information Technology (AOIT) at Hoover HS participated in a Job Shadow day with Qualcomm mentors. The 26 students were matched with mentors and toured the main buildings, the IT department and the new Qualcomm museum.

The students spent a working lunch with their mentors interviewing them about their career paths. Students found that many mentors did not have a straight, well-planned path to their current positions. The students found the non-traditional and sometimes jagged paths both interesting and encouraging.
