Junior / Senior Job Shadowing Program
WHAT IS JOB SHADOWING ?
Job shadowing is an experience where you will spend a half day or a full day at an employer’s place of business.. Your day will depend on the site, but most likely you will be involved or observing various activities throughout the day that are typical for the job.
WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?
Job shadowing allows you to really explore those careers and/or opportunities that may interest you. By "shadowing" someone in their job for a day, you get a first-hand, insider's look into what that person's job involves. The shadowed mentor can show you just what are the benefits, and challenges, of their position. By seeing how the mentor interacts with their co-workers, participating in the activities that they face every day, and seeing what it takes to "be that person", you will gain valuable insight into whether their job or career is something you might want to pursue yourself.
