Job Shadowing

Wednesday, March 15th

What is Job Shadowing?

Job shadowing is a career exploration activity that offers an opportunity to spend time with a professional currently working in a person’s career field of interest. Job shadowing offers a chance to see what it’s actually like working in a specific job. Not only do job shadowers get to observe the day-to-day activities of someone in the current workforce, they also get a chance to have their questions answered.

Not sure what to do with the next chapter in your life after high school?

Do not waste money on paying tuition for classes you are not going to need or on a career that is not going to fit you.

One of the best ways for teenagers to learn about the workforce is through hands on learning activities.
