Wellesley Career Education is thrilled to announce the January 2020 winter job shadow program on January 14 and 15. But first, we need your help! Help us make this event possible by volunteering to host a local Wellesley student who will be in your area for winter break and is interested in learning about your particular career or industry.
What is a job shadow?
A job shadow is an educational experience that allows students to learn more about a particular career path, industry, company, or role by spending time with (“shadowing”) an experienced professional on the job for a designated amount of time, typically for a day or less. In many ways, a job shadow is similar to an informational interview; however, job shadows provide the added benefit of combining in-person discussion with on-site experience. You are not expected to restructure your day, but rather allow the student to accompany you to meetings and observe various tasks in order to get a true sense of your job and company.
How do I get involved?
To participate, simply check your calendar and see if January 14 or 15 would allow you the flexibility to host a Wellesley student at your workplace for a minimum of 3 hours.
Please use the link below to sign up by December 2. Career Education will then do the work of matching you with a Wellesley student.
