Job Shadow

Job Shadow is a specific model of experiential learning that gives students a first-hand look at a work environment within a chosen field. Job Shadow offers you a chance to engage with professionals who can aid in your academic decision-making and post-graduate career planning.

Participating in Job Shadow gives you a chance to test-drive a specific job or employment sector to see if it is a  good fit for your skills, interests and career plans. You may have the chance to speak to an individual in your ‘dream job’ and make a connection that helps define your future! Job shadow connects you with future employers in informal, but meaningful, ways and provides a ‘sneak peek’ into a work world that lies just beyond graduation.

The Arts & Humanities Job Shadow Program is open to 3rd and 4th year students.

Job Shadow opportunities will be posted on CareerCentral in early 2015. Job Shadow hosts will represent a range of professions relevant to a student with an Arts & Humanities degree, and will be located in Southwestern Ontario.
