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 on January 27, and applications to participate are due February 23. 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.
