Shadow a professional in a specific field for a day and explore your career options. With a job shadowing experience at Jamestown Community College, you’ll be able to try different jobs and see if your current major is the right fit for you.
You’ll be paired with a host - many of whom are JCC alumni - for a day of first-hand observation and intensive one-on-one career exploration. A typical job shadow includes a tour of the company; conversations with professionals; exploring skills, education, and training to succeed in an industry; and talking with recent hires at the company to discuss their path to employment.
Students aren’t the only ones who benefit from job shadowing. Host companies have a unique opportunity to connect with and inspire students early in their college career, influence their academic choices, and build awareness of the rewarding career opportunities available in our region.
