Job Shadow Program
The Career Development Center is proud to present the annual Job Shadow Program, offered to all undergraduate students. A job-shadowing experience is a one day opportunity for students to gain understanding of a business, industry, and/or job function, to ask questions, and to observe day to day business operations. It also encourages students, alumni, and organizations to forge strong and valuable connections. The Job Shadow Program is not for academic credit and students are not compensated, but the experience will be greatly beneficial to both students and hosts.
The 2016 Job Shadow Program is scheduled during the week of January 11–15, 2016. This is not during an academic session, but is part of the interim period between fall and spring semesters.
