Join the Boston Youth Environmental Network on Job Shadow Day 2013

Job Shadow Day 2013 will take place on Friday, February 1st.

When a company participates in Job Shadow Day, it is demonstrating a commitment to supporting and improving the community. Individual hosts benefit from the satisfaction that comes with mentoring a young person and introducing him or her to a new career.

On the day of the event, students visit the worksite and shadow professionals for 3 to 4 hours, observing and assisting them with their work. The PIC makes your participation easy.

  • PIC career specialists work directly with students to prepare them for the experience through a series of career readiness workshops.
  • When you sign up, the PIC will e-mail you a brief “host’s guide” that includes suggested activities to help structure the event.
  • You simply provide a brief job description to help PIC staff match with student career interests.
