What is a Job Shadow?
Job shadowing gives you a chance to learn what someone does in a job that interests you. It involves observing one or more people on the job for two to three hours and asking them questions. You will be able to see first-hand the types of jobs that exist in the business world and the skills necessary for those jobs. There are local job shadow opportunities in the following industries: Banking, Biotech, Consulting, Dental, Engineering, Financial Services, Fitness, Healthcare, Hospitality, Insurance, Legal, Manufacturing, Medical, Radio Broadcasting, Real Estate, Recruiting, Retail, Small Business Development, and Web/Print Design.
Contact Sue Reynolds, Career Development Coordinator, at the district office and she will put you in touch with a business. Tell her which industry and career you want to learn about.
