Job Shadow Program
Due to health and safety precautions that have been implemented as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person Job Shadow Program has been temporarily suspended until further notice.
Students interested in exploring career fields and connecting with industry professionals should sign-up to participate in the 5 Steps to Build Your Network program.
BY THE TIME YOU COMPLETE ALL 5 STEPS OF THIS PROGRAM, YOU WILL:
- Develop a compelling self-introduction
- Find and interview at least one professional of your interest
- Reflect on your experience and what you’ve learned
When you sign up, you will receive a series of emails containing resources and tips to expand your professional network and tap into the knowledge of experienced professionals.
Shadow Professionals in the Field
Explore an industry, organization, and/or specific job role during a one-of-a-kind opportunity to shadow professionals in the field for ONE DAY during Winter Break, Spring Break, and early Summer Break.
Depending on the nature of the company you visit, your shadow may include:
- sitting in on meetings
- facility tours
- observing daily work
- informational interviews
- or even hands-on projects
The Job Shadow Program (JSP) is a FREE but UNPAID experience. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from host sites, as well as their lunch (unless otherwise indicated) during the Job Shadow Program.
Discover what the Job Shadow Program is all about & hear directly from students who have shadowed.
