A Job Shadowing experience involves spending half-days or full-days at a business, non-profit organization, industry, or government agency. The Career Seeker shadows one or more employees during the experience, trying to gain an understanding of what people do while they work and learn about a particular occupation or industry. By participating in job shadowing and visiting an employer, youth will observe a number of employees engaged in a variety of tasks and ask questions of these employees. Youth can explore what kinds of work they are interested in and what education and training they will need to help reach their personal career goals. They will observe what really happens in the world of work. Furthermore, they will see how what they learn in school is used on the job, what skills are needed for a job, develop positive relations between Career Seekers and the business employees, and meet interesting people in the community.
