Job Shadowing Program
613-562-5800 x 4663
Please note that this program is temporarily on pause, as the health and safety of our students is a top priority. We look forward to offering job shadowing placements when it is safe to do so.
Are you interested in helping students get a glimpse of what it’s like to work in your organization?
We invite you to host an intern as part of the Telfer Job Shadowing Program.
Career planning is not a simple task. It requires personal reflection, research, and exposure to various options. As an employer host participating in the Telfer Job Shadowing Program, you will have the opportunity to help one of our business students test-drive a career related to his/her field of interest.
Benefits of participating
You will have the chance to:
- Give back to your community by offering an experiential learning opportunity
- Expose your organization and corporate culture to a potential future candidate
- Gain assistance and feedback from an eager business student
Step 1- Connect with Ashley Foster (Relationship Manager) at the Telfer Career Centre
Step 2- Complete an information sheet regarding your preferred date(s) and interests
Step 3- Host a one-day job shadowing placement for a Telfer student (October / February)
Step 4- Provide feedback to the Career Centre regarding your experience
Example Day: You will take ownership over the structure of your intern’s day; however, it could begin with a one-on-one meeting to share information about your role and career path. Following that, activities could include a tour of the workplace, attending team meetings, observing daily tasks, and/or exposure to hands-on projects. Every placement will be unique and we encourage you to create an interesting, eye-opening, and meaningful experience for your intern.
