Ensuring College & Career Readiness

Job Shadowing

Job shadowing is a work-based learning activity, providing students the opportunity to gather information about a specific career possibility. Students will job shadow a worksite with one or more employee(s) to observe and experience a day in the life of someone in a field in which they have an interest.

Job shadowing is a required component of each student’s curriculum in their first year in each program and is designed to assist students to explore a further interest in a current chosen career area. All students will schedule a job shadowing experience that aligns with their Prosser course, and each student will earn credit towards their semester grade for successfully completing all components of the job shadowing experience.
