Key Activities & Deliverables

Job shadowing places students in workplaces to interact with and observe one or more employees.

A job shadowing experience can help the student learn more about the nature of the job and the work environment as well as the education and training required to succeed.

Job shadowing experiences are sometimes the first opportunities for students to observe the workplace and to interact with employees for more in-depth exposure to both careers and workplaces.
