Job shadowing can be a great way to expand your network and get a real-world glimpse of a specific role, work environment or field. This can help you make decisions regarding your coursework and career path.
Job shadowing is following— or “shadowing”—a practicing professional as they go through their workday to help get a sense of that professional’s role or field. It’s typically short in duration, ranging from a day to a week, and can be set up as part of a formal program or arranged independently.
The Job Shadow Program (JSP) is a one-day learning opportunity for undergraduate students offered over Winter Intersession and Spring Break, allowing you to experience potential career paths and work environments firsthand. The program will introduce you to a professional work culture as well as career opportunities that relate to your interests and skills.
