Job-shadowing is often touted as a career-exploration activity for middle-school and high-school students to help them determine a career path to follow. Shadowing also helps students see how their textbook learning can be applied in the real world.
- Job-shadowing can occur at various stages of one’s career development.
- Job-shadowing is a close cousin of informational interviewing, in which career-explorers or job-seekers conduct short interviews with people in their prospective professions to learn more about those fields.
- You can learn a lot more about employers by experiencing them in the actual trenches than you can in any other way.
- National Job Shadowing Day is February 2nd
