Job Shadowing Opportunities

When a student develops an interest in a specific profession but has limited information about it, tagging along and observing a professional in a company setting can answer a lot of questions. Shadowing a professional can help answer many questions:

  • What is a typical day like?
  • How did you get started in this career?
  • What changes are occurring in the field?
  • What skills and personal attributes are required to be successful?
  • What are the frustrations in your job?
  • What do you like most about your job?

The counselors in the Career Services Center have many job shadowing contacts established within the St. Charles community. If you would like assistance in scheduling a job shadowing opportunity, call 636-922-8244.  You can also go online to shadow real people's jobs:
