Gaining Experience

 

Experiences outside of the classroom are an important way to enrich your NDSU education.  Experience can help you to define your career path, gain relevant skills, enhance your future employability, and begin building a professional network.  Related experience is valued by our hospital affiliates.  If you are interested in gaining healthcare-related work or volunteer experience, please set up an appointment with your advisor, to help you determine what types of opportunities are right for you.  Other useful resources include:

Job Shadow

"Shadowing" is a job observation in your profession of interest.  Completing a job shadow can help you better understand the daily work of professionals in your career interest area.  The opportunity to see first-hand the environment in which you may someday work can help you to determine if it is a good match for your interests, skills and values.  Job shadowing can also allow you an opportunity to ask specific questions you have about the career field, and to interact with current professionals and interns. To learn more about arranging a job shadow in your area of interest, please use the links below:
