Job Shadow Program
Shadow Professionals in the Field
Explore an industry, organization or job function during a one-of-a-kind opportunity to shadow professionals in the field during Spring Break, March 5-9, 2018.
Depending on the nature of the company you visit, your day may include sitting in on meetings, facility tours, observing daily work, informational interviews, or hands-on experience. The Job Shadow Program (JSP) is not a paid experience. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the host site as well as their lunch (unless otherwise notified) during the Job Shadow Program.
