Panthership Shadow for a Day
Monday, March 13 – Friday, March 17, 2017
As part of the Panthership Shadow for a Day program, Robinson students shadow employers for a day at their office and gain a behind-the-scenes perspective on working in a particular field.
Information for Employers
Employers are encouraged to involve students in as many activities as possible and to facilitate interactions with various staff members.
During a typical shadowing day, a student ideally will:
- tour the facility
- engage in informational interviews
- attend a staff meeting
- discuss job opportunities at the company
- review the organization’s informational collateral and organization charts
- meet with an intern or college representative
- interact with different departments such as human resources and company leadership
- one day, onsite
- 6-8 hours
Hosts are responsible for providing a beneficial and exciting shadowing experience for students. We do not expect company volunteers to establish an ongoing mentorship with students; that is at their discretion.
How do I volunteer to serve as a host?
We accept employer applications throughout the year.
