Job Shadow Experience

A job shadow is typically a half or full day experience designed to provide a student with exposure to a particular career or industry. While job shadow experiences will vary from company to company, most experiences will involve a facility tour and time spent with an employee or other company representative observing work performed. This experience also provides an excellent opportunity to learn about a particular organization and possible future employment opportunities, develop professional contacts, and gain valuable insight into the organizations hiring process and traits/skills the organization identifies as crucial to success. The Job Shadow Playbook video will provide insights on the Job Shadow experience.
