The PIC is looking for Boston area professionals to host students for the 17th annual Groundhog Job Shadow Day on Friday, February 3rd. This half day event will expose Boston public high school students to the world of work. Learn more and sign up at the PIC’s Job Shadow Day website.
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.
