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

Time Commitment

  • 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.
