What is a Job Shadow?

A structured workplace visit that is designed to engage students by connecting classroom learning with practical business and industry observations and experiences.

Why Job Shadows Matter

  • Provides opportunities for students to explore career pathways at an earlier age and introduces company and industry leaders to their future workforce.
  • Exposes students to real-world career readiness expectations by introducing workplace  expectations such as professionalism, dress code, work ethic, and reliability.
  • Encourages students to nurture an industry connection that may lead to an internship opportunity.
