A Shadowship is a short version of an internship with a difference that students don't yet know what they want to study but are willing to explore different careers. In other words, it is a snapshot of a day at the office aimed to help students understand the responsibilities and daily tasks of a professional in the field. Shadowship provides exciting reasons why students should stay in school andcreates a critical link between education and success.
Ever wonder what it would be like to ask an Attorney, Teacher or Nurse Practitioner how they began their career, what type of work is involved with their career and what are some of the challenges of their career?
Now you can!
Shadowships help high school students gain real life career experience, make connections, learn about a field, and assess their interest and abilities.
Student interested in a particular career, the best advice is "Look before you leap." Shadowship is an ideal way to do this.
It is really important that you link education to a desirable career. School becomes less of a burden when you make this connection --- and easier. We can help to develop career aspirations now.
MyMentorLink provides a platform to help your students, through shadowships, better understand and choose a career field they are planning to study for in college.
