Job Shadowing

Expand your realm of experience

The Job Shadowing program runs from February to August each year. Hosts may volunteer to participate at any point, but are encouraged to do so before the program officially opens, as most students select their hosts at that time.

The Job Shadowing program offers current students an essential opportunity to:

  • Gain valuable insights from current information and museum professionals
  • Form, develop, and cultivate their personal networks and connections
  • Expand their realm of experience

On average each year, we coordinate anywhere from 60-100 matches. Students may job shadow locally or out of town. We particularly welcome hosts in the areas above outside of Library and Information Science.

If you are a current student and have questions about job shadowing, please contact the Careers Office by e-mail at
