Job Shadowing

Description: Some students are not able to get internships or part-time jobs. Junior are interested in networking and getting internships for their desired career, BUT not all students are able to be accepted for an internship. Although shadowing jobs is not really desired, it is a way to be in the work environment, learn from managers, and network. This event was established to give our students the opportunity to get a feel of the workforce. This event can be for a day(s) or even weeks, depending on how much do you work to help and build relationships with our students!

Employer Panel
April 15, 2021 3 PM - 4:30 PM
This event strives to connect employers with students and allow the students to ask employers questions to better understand how to prepare for interviews, how to enter the workforce, or information about the company in general. We hope that the employers and students are very diversified. This will result in a variety of answers and questions. The students can get a closer look at different employers and what they require, and the employers will be able to connect with students and give insightful feedback about their careers.

*Students are required to apply via Handshake.
