Many students at colleges and universities nationwide take time during school-year breaks to "shadow" a professional to learn more about the field and to experience working life. So what's the best way to go about becoming a job shadow?
Sometimes, you can set up shadowing experiences on your own, with family, friends, or acquaintances -- or by contacting a company or organization that you know offers the sort of experience you're seeking. But generally, it's best to work through Career Development, where counselors and advisors can provide guidance and opportunities. The Husky Career Network program also is an excellent place to start locating contacts.
