The job shadowing program provides our trainees with a unique experiential opportunity to visit the workplace and interact with various professionals to learn more about their specific career paths. This program will provide participants with a better understanding of career expectations. Hosts and trainees are matched on the basis of career interests or professional development goals.
The program includes:
- A one-on-one placement with a professional in your career of interest.
- Placements are short-term engagements (half a day to a full day) on-site at the Host’s workplace.
- A feedback reflection due the week following the placement.
Example placement activities may include:
- Attending meetings
- Workplace tours
- Industry-specific discussions and analysis
- Writing samples
Trainees that are successfully matched with a host will be asked to confirm their participation in the program, and a specific date will be scheduled for the placement following a short orientation session in January 2019. Note that while each host is willing to take on multiple trainees separately over the duration of the program, each trainee will be limited to one host per cycle.
