Career Exploration: Job Shadowing

During the winter break, students are encouraged to arrange a job shadow experience with someone who works in their field of interest. Job shadowing may involve taking a “behind the scenes” tour of an organization, attending team meetings, interviewing people who hold positions at different levels of a company, and identifying a mentor who can assist you in evaluating potential career options. To connect with UD alumni who may be willing to host your visit to their place of employment, log in to Handshake.
