Take a Patriot to Work Day

8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Shadow an employer for one day and get an inside perspective on what it really means to work in your industry or career of interest.

Job shadowing allows you to learn more than you can from just a conversation with a recruiter – without the long-term commitment of an internship or job.

On November 7, spend the day with a professional at their workplace. As their “shadow,” you will go where they go, see what they see, and maybe even do what they do.
