Job Shadows

Job shadowing lets you "try before you buy." You can check out a career for a day to see if you're really interested. You might like the idea of a job, but not like the day-to-day rhythms and challenges of it. Liking a "typical day" on the job will mean greater success for you down the road. When you're on the job shadow, ask questions about what the person likes and dislikes about that job, what a good career path looks like, and what more you need to do to get your foot in the door.
