Do you want to help give an Honors student a glimpse into your profession?
The SAS Honors Summer Shadow Experience is a one day job shadowing experience which gives Honors Alumni an opportunity to mentor a current Honors student and help them to preview a potential career at your place of work.
One way to accomplish this is to set up a schedule for the day which allows for maximum exposure on what you do. Through this one day shadowing experience at your place of work our students hope to:
- Explore their curiosity about an interested career
- Get an inside preview into a professional environment
- Meet with professionals in the field
- Discover whether the industry or professional role is a good fit
- Learn industry vocabulary
If you are an Honors alum who would like to participate in an upcoming Summer Shadow Experience, please fill out the application form below.
Joel Cabrera '20 (Economics & Political Science) shadowed Matthew Connors '08 (Physics & Chemistry), big data consultant at World Wide Technology, an award-winning technology integrator, in New York City. (Summer 2019)
Joel's favorite part of the day was, "talking with Matthew's analysts who volunteered to partake in the shadowing and himself." Joel added, "I'm grateful for the SASHP giving students the opportunity to partake in shadowing experiences that are related to and can help them with their career and academic goals!"
