Job Shadow Program – Student Introduction
The Job Shadow Program gives you a chance to learn about what someone actually does in a job that is of interest to you. Job shadows will provide you with an opportunity to see first hand the kind of jobs that exist.
WHAT IS A JOB SHADOW?
Your job shadow will involve spending approximately three to four hours observing one or more people while they work at their jobs. Your goal will be to learn as much as possible by observing, listening, asking good questions and taking good notes. We will help you to prepare for your job shadow, but you will have to fulfill your responsibilities.
WHAT IS IN IT FOR ME?
You may be wondering how a job shadow will help you in your education. Here are a few things that you will gain from your job shadow:
1. You see firsthand what really goes on in the work place. 2. You may have the opportunity to travel to other places in the city. 3. You can explore a career in which you might have an interest. 4. You will meet interesting people that may help you with future jobs. 5. You will understand what is needed to attain various jobs. 6. You will learn a vital part of the career exploration process. 7. You will have fun!
Use this opportunity to learn more about a career of interest! It is better to find out now if this is a good choice for you rather than spending thousands of dollars on college and find out it is not something you want to do!!
