When students explore what interests them, they grow beyond the confines of the classroom. Job shadowing provides an opportunity for your student to explore potential careers while in high school. Job Shadow Week allows students in grades 9–12 to learn from industry experts and expand their understanding of professional expectations—in an online environment.
This year’s event will be completely virtual and take place July 13th through 17th, 2020. Participation is free!
What Is Job Shadowing?
Job shadowing programs allow high school students to experience what careers actually look like by following along with existing employees. Students gain insight into whether or not a job would be a good fit for them while making important professional connections in the process.
How can my company get involved in job shadowing for high school students?
Participating companies can promote virtual volunteerism amongst their employees while teaching, inspiring, and guiding the future workforce.
