Program Dates: January 6-14th, 2022
Application Opens: Monday, October 25th, 2021
Application Closes: Friday, November 19th, 2021

A job shadow is a 1-day experience designed to explore a specific career path and experience a typical day in the life of an employee or team. Job shadows can include a tour of the workplace, a discussion about job responsibilities, and the opportunity to watch and experience a day on the job. This summer, job shadows are available in the areas of engineering, entrepreneurship, business, construction management, computer science, communication, design, social services, life sciences, manufacturing, and more.

A job shadow is valuable because it:

  • Provides the real-life experience needed to confirm or redirect your career path.
  • Demonstrates the skills necessary to excel in that field.
  • Provides valuable insight into the current trends and jargon of the industry.
  • Helps you start building your professional network.
  • Increases your self-confidence, professionalism, and communication skills.

Student Testimonials

" The most valuable part of my job shadow experience was that I was able to get a real-life, realistic view into the work field and environment. I was able to learn so much from the experiences and advice of people who had many years of work experience under their belts."

" This experience has convinced me that accounting will be the major I pursue at a 4-year school after I graduate from NCC. I was able to get a lot of my questions about the career field answered and I now have a much clearer picture of what to expect once I reenter the workforce."
