Work shadowing allows you to observe someone in the workplace carrying out their day-to-day job. Lasting usually only a few days, you can gain an insight into a role you are interested in and it can help you to build your network.
To source a work shadowing opportunity;
- Consider what type of experience you want to gain, if you are unsure - try our ‘My Career Options’ webpage or book a quick query to discuss it with a Careers Manager.
- Make connections through the network
- Speculatively apply for positions
