What does Job Shadowing look like?
Connect with one of hundreds of alums offering to host alums; find a time that works for you both (often over winter break, but not exclusively); spend the day observing/shadowing them at work; gain clarity on what a typical work day looks like in a field or industry of interest; send a Thank You note and potentially stay in touch with your new connection! That's it.
Many UVM students shadow an alum over winter break to help determine if a certain type of job is a good fit with their interests and goals. Job shadowing is an option for students of all majors, class years, and of any GPA. Hundreds of alums offer to host job shadows in a variety of different industries and locations. You are not expected to have prior knowledge or experience; this is a great learning opportunity!
