Job Shadowing

What exactly is Job Shadowing?

  • You follow a sponsor at their office to gather information about their job, career field and the kind of preparation you need to enter their profession
  • Sponsors (employer participants) are people who are Auburn alumni, parents or friends who volunteer their time to help Auburn students
  • You are matched with a sponsor whose occupation most closely matches your career interests
  • You receive the name of your sponsor after the Participant Form is completed
  • We are unable to set-up job shadowing requests for most medical fields. The exceptions are physical therapy, occupational theraphy, speech therapy, and pharmacy.

Who may participate in Job Shadowing?
