WINTER TERM JOB SHADOW PROGRAM

What is the Winter Term Job Shadow Program?

The Winter Term Job Shadow Program provides Delaware students the opportunity to ‘shadow’ UD alumni, parents, or employer representatives throughout a typical workday. As a Job Shadow host, you have the opportunity to share industry knowledge and advice with students, while providing them with realistic insights into a certain field.

Job Shadow Activities

There are many factors involved in the uniqueness of each job shadow experience. Students may enjoy tours of your workplace, meetings with key members of your team and/or organization, learning about your specific career path, and receiving career advice from someone currently employed in their field of interest. As a host, we encourage you to involve your student in your daily work activities as a means to assist the student in evaluating their potential career options. Students should leave their job shadow day with a realistic idea of what it is like to be in your job. The job shadowing experience should be at least one day (minimum of six hours) and can extend to two days.

Student Selection Process

The Career Services Center will send all hosts a packet of applications from students interested in their shadowing experience. The packet will include each student’s resume and statement of interest. If more than one student applies, the host will determine how many and which students will be offered job shadowing experiences. Student can apply for up to four shadowing opportunities. Please note that there may not be a match between a student and your job shadowing experience. If a match does not occur we are happy to connect you with additional student engagement opportunities.

How to get involved in the Winter Term Job Shadow Program

Please complete the Job Shadow Host registration form. A member of the Career Services Center will be in touch with you within one business day to discuss next steps in the registration process.
