Job Shadowing for Employers

In a job-shadowing situation, students can observe a professional on the job, ask questions, and gain a better understanding of the career. The intent of these informal relationships is to offer students a glimpse at a typical workday within a career.

If your company/organization would be interested in providing shadowing opportunities for students, please contact Kelli Holmes at (205) 934-4324 or email kjholmes@uab.edu.
