Gohan Szerthche, 17, of Vacaville High School, has a good idea of what he wants to be when he gets out of school: an electrical mechanic – something that his father knows all about.
“I want to be a mechanic like my dad,” he said Friday.
Those skills he will gain from college coursework would come in handy at Synder Filtration in Vacaville, which is where his school stopped for a career day event that brought together students from most of Solano County’s high schools.
More than 900 sophomores from around the county boarded 25 buses and headed out to 30 area businesses, as well as institutions such as Travis Air Force Base, the California State University Maritime Academy, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and other locations participated for National Job Shadow Day.
