Please note: The Job Shadow program is currently on hold, and will return in Winter 2019. Look for information about these opportunities in Fall 2018.

Job Shadow is a specific model of experiential learning that gives students a first-hand look at a work environment within a chosen field. Job Shadow offers students a chance to engage with professionals who can aid in their academic decision-making and post-graduate career planning.

Job shadow experiences will return in the winter term 2019.  If you would like to participate please find more information here.

Information for Hosts

Thank you for considering hosting a job shadow student. Here you will find details about the goals and function of the Job Shadow program. 

Information for Students

Participating in Job Shadow gives you a chance to test-drive a specific job or employment sector to see if it is a good fit for your skills, interests and career plans. You may have the chance to speak to an individual in your ‘dream job’ and make a connection that helps define your future! Job shadow connects you with future employers in informal, but meaningful, ways and provides a ‘sneak peek’ into a work world that lies just beyond graduation.
