Holidays are a Great Time for Job Shadowing and Exploring Summer Internships

The break over the holidays is the perfect time for you to job shadow in some careers that interest you.
Simply call an organization and ask for the person that does the career that you’re interested in pursuing. Once you have the person on the phone, simply ask if you can shadow them for a day because you are interested in doing what they do as a career choice. You will find most people are more than happy to share their knowledge.
A side benefit could be a part-time job or summer internship.
When you are meeting people at holiday events, listen for what they do as a living. If it peaks your interest, ask them questions and then ask to shadow them.
We recommend you do as much research into your career choices as possible. This will help you determine if a career choice is a good choice for you.
