JOB SHADOW

Job Shadow gives students that thing that they need to narrow their search down. As a child you have so many dreams and aspirations… I’ve always wanted to be multiple things, and because of Job Shadow, I’ve been able to narrow my path [into a single career].

WHAT IS JOB SHADOW WEEK

Reality Changers students “shadow” professionals during a normal workday to gain a first-hand look at the skills, knowledge, and education required to succeed in a career. It is a half-day (2-4 hours) experience designed to expose high school students to the world of work and offer students a chance to explore careers of interest.

CAN I HOST STUDENTS ON MULTIPLE DATES?

Yes, this gives more students opportunities to shadow your site.

CAN I HOST MORE THAN ONE STUDENT?

Yes, students may share similar career interests as others and hosting multiple students helps orientate those who may be shy.

WHO PROVIDES TRANSPORTATION FOR THE STUDENT(S)?

We will provide all transportation to get your student host to the site on-time.

I AM NOT ABLE TO HOST A STUDENT AT MY SITE, WHAT OTHER WAYS CAN I GET INVOLVED?

We have two ways hosts can give Reality Changers students insight on careers, (1) schedule a tour to a group of students to experience your facilities and meet with key internal stakeholders in the company, and (2) schedule a virtual tour through Skype or Facetime to give students an inside look at your workplace and answer questions from a classroom of students. Please contact Chanel Bradley at Chanel@realitychangers.org to schedule an alternative hosting date.

CAN I SWITCH MY DATES IF MY SCHEDULE CHANGES AFTER I CONFIRMED?

Absolutely, we want to be as accommodating as possible according to your schedule and our students availability. Please notify Chanel at Chanel@realitychangers.org if your schedule changes.

My job shadow experience was incredibly entertaining and rewarding. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a valueable experience for me, and I hope it was for them.
