New York, New York November 25, 2002 – United States Senator Harry Reid (D -Nevada) was the
latest working professional to participate in Career Corner TV, Corp.’s new educational program,
Virtual job Shadow.

Virtual Job Shadow (VJS) (www.virtualjobshadow.com) gives students the ability to “shadow”
individuals on the job without leaving the classroom. The website features numerous “day -in -the –
life” video profiles of professionals in different careers. The videos are fast-paced, entertaining and
informative, delivered over the Internet via streaming technology.

Career Corner TV videotaped Senator Reid at his office in the U.S. Capital Building in Washington D.C.
“The best way to prepare yourself for public service is to be a nice person. Be nice to everybody. Follow
the golden rule- do unto them as you would have them do unto you,” advised the Senator.
Two of Senator Reid’s staff members also participated in the program.

 “We are honored that Senator Reid committed his valuable time to participate in VJS. We have no
doubt that many students, after watching Senator Reid’s inspiring profile, will pursue political careers of
their own,” said Kim Celentano, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Career Corner TV, Corp.
