Support the professional development of students who could be your future talent. Join a growing number of employers who serve as mentors in our job shadowing program.

It’s easy. Simply host interested students for a one-time, two- to four-hour job shadowing visit. Benefits to you include:

  • Leadership development opportunities for current employees
  • Increased name awareness among future professionals
  • A chance to connect with students who will be applying for internships and jobs in your industry
  • The opportunity to more deeply examine the “whys” behind your daily processes

We’ll work with you to set up a shadowing program that benefits both you and your guest student. Some tips:

  • Plan the visit to accommodate the student’s interests and goals
  • Include a tour of the office or worksite
  • Provide career advice that helped you succeed or grow
  • Allow time for the student to observe your daily tasks and responsibilities
