What Is a Job Shadow
A Job shadow experience is literally spending time “in the shadow” of a person doing his or her job. It gives you a glimpse into the world of work, where you can get first-hand information about job skills and careers. By spending a few hours or a full day, a job shadow experience will help you to get a true picture of what it would be like to work in that career.
What you gain from the experience
- · A better understanding of the job elements of a specific career choice.
- · Make contact with a potential future employer.
- · Determine if the career is compatible with your interests and abilities.
- · To identify what educational choices will coincide with that career path.
