More than 100 job shadow placements up for grabs

Students interested in trying out a job for a day can apply for one of 130 Job Shadow placements on campus, in Hamilton and in the Greater Toronto Area during the week of Nov. 3 to 7.

Co-ordinated by the Student Success Centre, the Job Shadow program enables students to shadow a professional of their choice for a full or half day.  “The program gives participants an opportunity to learn new skills, expand their work portfolio and build networks,” says Phil Williams, experiential program co-ordinator. There are a wide range of placements to choose from including accounting, business, finance, human resources, health care, public health, research, law, journalism and more.

The deadline to apply is Oct. 13 at 11:59 p.m. For additional information or to apply, visit OSCARplus and go to the placements tab. A cover letter and resume is all that is required. For students who need a resume refresher, drop-in resume critiques are available in the SSC (Gilmour Hall 110) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
