Job Shadowing

Job shadowing is a career exploration activity. Students gain exposure to careers that they are interested in pursuing by working with business volunteers. For a short period of time, up to several days, students spend the work day as a shadow to a competent worker. By visiting a workplace, investigating a career field and industry, and experiencing a typical day on the job, students can determine if the career and industry fits their interests and career aspirations.
