Virtual job shadowing is an opportunity for you to “shadow,” or observe, someone in their job. Through this observation, you’ll learn about the day-to-day responsibilities of the role and the culture of the organization.
Check With Your School. High schools often have connections with various companies who offer job shadowing. Ask your academic adviser or someone at your school’s career office for a list of organizations you can contact.
Job shadowing allows you to learn about the work cultures of different organizations and learn which culture you like best. This is helpful to know when choosing between job offers since work culture can often make or break a decision.
