Job shadowing for AUCA students

This is a new opportunity for AUCA students to explore careers and get a short experience to make a decision if it is the career path student would like to focus on. There are different options to explore careers like internship, volunteering. Job shadowing has its benefits and limits. By comparing job shadowing and internship, it is possible to see the unique features of each option. Difference between job shadowing and internship is mainly in timeframe: job shadowing is short (up to one week) vs. one/two months of internship. As a result experience can be limited to overview of the office main functions, however no detailed commitments to long term projects/ activities. This means student gets only overall understanding about company/department/ office. Now we are searching AUCA Alumni who are willing to commit time and energy to create job shadowing opportunities for our students. In other words alumni will be considered to be a host in job shadowing and help our students to learn about careers. Career Service office’s intension to create a list of companies where job shadowing is possible.
