Executive Job Shadow Program

Job shadowing is the opportunity for students to spend 2 days with a top level executive in their interest area. This exposure allows students to witness the work environment and potential career options firsthand. It is an invaluable insight into your future!

The FCB will pay for all travel related expenses except for meals.

Job Shadow experiences take place in early January, during Spring Break, or immediately following the end of the spring semester.

There will be an Executive Job Shadow Pathway on Friday November 3, 2017, to hear from 4 previous Shadows about their experience.

The deadline for applying to shadow in 2018 is Friday, November 10, 2017 by 5:00 PM MST. You can access the application HERE, which will open in a new window. By the deadline, please submit this application and your resume to the Career Development Office in Room 108 or email to: fcb-cdo@nau.edu.
