May 12, 2003: JobShadow.org
While this site centers around a one-day job-shadowing event that ties in with Groundhog’s Day, it is also a rich resource on the concept of job-shadowing, in which students and others “shadow” workplace mentors as they go through a normal day on the job. Job Shadowing is led by the National Job Shadow Coalition.
The site offers a free newsletter, a job-shadowing brochure, current news about job-shadowing, links to career tips and resources through co-sponsor Monster.com, and a comprehensive downloadable guide for employers, students, parents, and educators interested in organizing a job-shadow day.
