Quick and Quintessential Career & Job Tips
Job-hunting tips from the January 29, 2001 issue of QuintZine.
Three days after this QuintZine’s issue date is not only Ground Hog’s Day, but Groundhog Job Shadow Day. Feb. 2 is the kickoff to a 2001 year-long national effort geared toward providing students with an up-close look at how skills learned in school are put into action in the workplace. Last year on Groundhog Job Shadow Day more than a million of America’s youth set off to explore more than 75,000 workplaces nationwide. Job shadowing is a fantastic way for young people to explore careers and try them on for size — but you don’t have to be a kid to learn about careers by job-shadowing. Anyone can do it.
Find out more at the Groundhog Job Shadow Day site, where you can also learn about Virtual Jobshadowing, sponsored by Monster.com, an initiative that will allow students to shadow working professionals online. Students will be able to see what takes place in the typical day of up to 50 professionals.
