Job Shadowing

We understand the importance of giving potential employees a sneak peek into various career options. Job shadowing allows an interested individual to experience first-hand the atmosphere and skills needed to be successful within a business.

Employers benefit because they can clearly define their current and future workforce needs.

Through a structured job shadow, interested adults or students explore a career by observing an employee performing their work duties on-site. The experience promotes real-world understanding of job or career expectations in a time-limited format.

The Job Shadowing Advantage:

For students or interested individuals:

  • Gain valuable career experience
  • Build up your enthusiasm
  • Gain real-world exposure to a career or job
  • Develop a contact network
  • Experience multiple potential careers
  • Only need a limited time commitment

For employers:

  • Connect to potential employees
  • Develop a pre-negotiated time commitment
  • Enjoy no-cost for the service
  • Gain access to a potential talent network
  • Enhance community visibility and awareness
