Western University’s Job Shadow program

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Imagine if you could have test-driven your current position to see if it was good fit for your skills, interests and career plans? Imagine if you could have talked to an individual in your ‘dream job’ and made a connection that helped define your future?

Western’s Job Shadow program gives students a first-hand look at a work environment within a chosen field, offering a chance for students to engage with professionals who can aid in their career planning. Job shadow connects students with future employers in meaningful ways and provides a ‘sneak peek’ into a work world that lies just beyond graduation.

A Job Shadow experience should include

An introduction to your organization
Interaction with some of your employees
A chance to ask questions about your work, education and career path

Job Shadow Experiences occur in November 2012, if you are interested in more information about becoming a host; please email Jeff Watson or call 519-661-2111 ext 89083

The Job Shadow Program is a collaborative effort between the Faculty of Social Science and The Student Success Centre at Western University.
