Think you might like to be a nurse, but you're not sure if your fear of needles and runny noses might get in the way? Job shadowing will let you see what a nurse does in a typical day, so you can learn what being one is all about.
Job shadowing allows students to follow workplace mentors as they go through a normal day on the job. In other words - they work, you watch and learn how things are done.
Job shadowing also benefits students by showing them how the skills and concepts they learn in school translate to the workplace. All those things you thought you never needed to learn, because you wouldn't use them anywhere but a classroom? Now you're going to see just how those things come into play in the working world.
Job shadowing also takes place on the Internet through a partnership with Monster.com called Virtual Job Shadowing, which allows students anywhere in the country to shadow working professionals online.
Career Corner TV also has an exploration tool for students called Virtual Job Shadow, featuring video profiles of people in different professions, and a website with career-related text information.
