Reverse Job Shadow


Share your career with students! Traditional job shadows bring students to the workplace. JA's Reverse Job Shadow brings the workplace to students! This is a great opportunity for local businesses and corporations to give back to the community and invest in possible future employees.

Purpose

The purpose of the career day is to expose students to career possibilities and give them the opportunity to speak to area professionals about their profession, how to set goals, how they arrived to where they are, what their company does, etc. This is also an opportunity to recruit employees.

Role of the Volunteer

As a volunteer you are given a table to set up your display: signs, posters, brochures, products - anything you wish to bring. Dress as you would for a work day - don't hold back! Students visit each station on a rotational basis, asking questions and learning about the different types of careers presented.

By participating in Reverse Job Shadow, students will...

  • Identify the next steps needed in their personal career exploration and preparation.
  • Be exposed to potential job opportunities and/or internships.
  • Develop job-hunting tools, such as networking, resumes, and interviewing skills.

To volunteer for the next Reverse Job Shadow, or bring the event to your school, contact Teresa Smith or call (904) 398-9944 ext. 227
