Job Shadowing


Job shadowing offers you a short-term experience to observe a professional working in a field that interests you.  You learn about the day-to-day activities of that particular career field, investigate the work environment, ask questions, and get a first-hand view of what a day-in-the-life can look like for this career.  Shadowing is a great job exploration tool, especially if you can't decide what major is right for you, if you have questions about a particular industry, or if you need clarification that you're on the right career path.
