Job Shadowing

In job shadowing, a student accompanies a person during a regular day at work. The special character of job shadowing - in contrast to an internship - is that the "shadow" does not work directly, but gets an insight into the daily routine of the desired job only by watching. In this way, an impression of typical tasks and of the employer can be gained directly on site.

A possible daily schedule

The job shadowing day is designed individually by the host employees. This can take place as follows, for example:

  • Getting to know each other and introduction
  • Guided tour of the company
  • Participation in typical work activities
  • Lunch together
  • Discussion of current work tasks and challenges
  • Final discussion and feedback
