Job Shadow Program

The Career Development Center is proud of our annual Job Shadow Program which is offered to all undergraduate students. A job-shadowing experience is a one day opportunity for students to gain understanding of a business, industry, and/or job function, to ask questions, and to observe day to day business operations. It also encourages students, alumni, and organizations to forge strong and valuable connections. The Job Shadow Program is not for academic credit and students are not compensated, but the experience is beneficial to both students and hosts.

The 2016 Job Shadow Program is scheduled during fall break, October 10-11, 2016.

We’re working to bridge the gap in high-poverty communities between the support that students actually need, and what their schools are designed and resourced to provide. By building teams of highly-trained AmeriCorps Members who serve full-time in schools as tutors, mentors, and role models, we’re helping to increase graduation rates across the country, changing the lives of the students we serve, and serving as an incubator for the professional young leaders of tomorrow. Opportunity would be of most interest to students of all majors.
