Jenison High School – Job Shadow for Employers

Frequently Asked Questions 

What would you like the students to observe?       A typical day in your career

Is there any paperwork involved? The actual person they are shadowing does not but the students will have to ask them some questions.

Do they have to stay the whole time?  Our min requirement is only 3 hours. We have had to make a few exceptions due to medical issues

-Do they just have to stay with me? No, but the student should know ahead of time. It would be great for students to get to see several people work in that field but have one main person to answer questions, etc.

-Can we take them to other locations? Yes, we had a student a few years ago that shadowed a construction worker. They started at a bid, went to a site and then went to the office.
