Program Overview

The Job Shadow Program is an opportunity for you to have a one day visit with an employer over Winter Break. This is a chance for you to shadow an employer, possibly an alumnus/a, to further develop your professional skills, and explore potential career fields. Employers use this program to promote their company and help in identifying future interns and/or full-time hires.

  • Attend a Job Shadow information session; this includes sessions with other Career offices
  • Sign Student Agreement form and agree to responsibilities
  • Submit resumes for qualified postings through Handshake
