Career Shadowing is a job-related experience where students spend time observing a professional on the job.
During Career Shadowing, small groups of students in high school will observe professionals on the job and experience “a day in the life” of a business environment to gain a deeper knowledge about existing careers, career pathways and the essential skills needed for success in the workplace. Shadowing will occur during the school day at a local business.
During Career Shadowing, small groups of high school students will spend the school day observing professionals for a “day in the life” experience of a specific business environment.
Students will become familiar with the business through a pre-brief lesson to make the most of their onsite visits. Afterwards, students will complete surveys and share academic connections with classmates. Altogether, the job-related experience will improve career-preparedness and encourage more intentional pathway choices.
It’s never too early to start building your future and the networking connections to get you there. Career Shadowing allows you to ask yourself, “Can I see myself in this career?”
