  • JOB SHADOWING
    What is Job Shadowing?
    Shadowing is a short-term educational experience to introduce a student to a particular job by a one-on-one pairing of a student with an employee in a work environment.  The student follows or "shadows" the worker for a specified time to better understand the requirements of a particular career.  
     
    What are the Benefits of Job Shadowing?
    Students:
    • It exposes students to the real "world of work".
    • Students learn about the skills and education needed for a particular job or career and how these relate to their classroom studies.
    • Helps students focus on their career interests.
    Employers:
    • Share career experiences, insights, and knowledge with future members of the workforce.
    • Assist in improving education programs.

    ACTC is very fortunate to have many employers who are willing to job shadow students.
