Job shadowing is an opportunity for students to visit places of work and experience career fields that interest them. An individual student may shadow an adult at work for one day; a group of students may visit a company and meet with several adults or departments, and may also receive a comprehensive overview and tour of the company, focusing on several areas. By preparing before and following up after their experiences, students gain a better understanding of themselves, their career goals, and the realities of the work world through this program.
Job shadowing sites include companies of all sizes and in all industries. Some representatives are: Acton Medical Associates, Acton Police Department, BAE Systems, Blanchard Memorial School, Boston Rescue Mission, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Cisco Systems, Concord District Court, Emerson Hospital, Fidelity Investments, Fruitlands Museum, Graham & Harsip, Holiday Inn, Indian Hill Music Center, Middlesex Savings Bank, Monster.com, Office of Pam Resor, Scheier & Katin, Science Discovery Museum, 3Com Corporation, Turner Construction Co., Valley Orthopaedics, and the World Trade Center, Boston.For further information, please contact:
