Job shadowing is a career exploration option in which students learn about a career by walking through the work day as a shadow to one of our professionals. The job shadowing experience is temporary, unpaid exposure to the workplace in a career area of interest to the student. Students witness first-hand the work environment, occupational skills in practice, the value of professional training and potential career options.
