Experience Now is a program of the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce that serves to connect teachers, school administrators, parents and students directly to opportunities with regional businesses. Experience Now gives students the unique opportunity to explore career fields and experience different businesses, industries and career opportunities first-hand.
Experience Now is a resource for students looking to connect with local businesses for career exploration opportunities like job shadowing, mentorships, internships and more. Parents, teachers and school administrators can also utilize Experience Now to facilitate business and industry tours, find classroom speakers, and support students in finding internships and mentors.
Experience Now was developed in conjunction with Southwest Baptist University's Computer and Information Science senior project team: Kenson Ashton, Alexandra Barcus, Renee Coleman, Josh Inman and Andrew Wilson with support from their adviser, Dr. Tim DeClue.
