"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 that you have about the career field, and to interact with current professionals and interns. Job shadows are highly recommended. Please visit with an Allied Sciences staff member to determine if this experience is right for you and discuss options for completing a job shadow.
