How the Program Works
Students review opportunities online beginning September 23.
Students apply between October 1 and October 20 by submitting a draft of their resume and an essay in which they indicate their top 4 choices and describe how they expect to benefit from the career shadowing experience.
Career Center staff will "match" student preferences with shadowing opportunities on a first-come, first-served basis.
Sponsors and students will be notified that a match has been made in mid-November. Sponsors will receive the name and contact information for the student; students will not receive contact information until the following two steps have been completed.
Students will revise their resumes and get them approved by Career Center staff.
Students will attend a mandatory "pre-departure workshop" at which staff from the Career Center will review expectations for program participation.
Students will make initial contact with shadow sponsor between mid-November and early December to arrange a mutually convenient day and time for the shadowing experience.
Students will arrive to "shadow" sponsors for a day/half-day between January 2 - 17, 2014.
Students and sponsors will complete a (required) evaluation of the HamiltonExplore program.
