What is a Job Shadow?

 Exploring Options....
Shadowing a professional in the workplace is one of the best ways to learn what a job is really like--from the inside. During the MetroLink shadow days, you will have the chance to spend a day with an alumnus or parent (or one of their colleagues) at their place of work. Hear and see what it is like firsthand. Your day could include a tour of the organization, talks with various people who work there, and observations of a typical day's duties, meetings or programs. This is the time for asking all the questions that some people wish they'd asked before they were hired.
