Q: "What is a job shadow?"

A: A job shadow is s a valuable tool to learn about a career/job you are interested in for your future. It is hard to know what it is like to be a teacher, an accountant, an architect, or a vet tech just from reading about it.

A job shadow is like a mini internship where you get are paired with a professional in your field of interest and you spend the day following them through their regular work schedule.


Choosing a career is very challenging. It is important that you take the time to explore many options and determine what is the best match for you!
