Mark events with your personal calendar Gaining Career-Related Experience Job Shadowing and Volunteering Job shadowing refers to a work experience option where individuals learn about a job by walking through the work day as a shadow to a competent worker. The job shadowing work experience is a temporary, unpaid exposure to the workplace in an occupational area of interest to the individual. Individuals witness firsthand the work environment, employability and occupational skills in practice, the value of professional training, and potential career options. Job shadowing is designed to increase career awareness, help model individual behavior through examples, and reinforce in the individual the link between classroom learning and work requirements. Almost any workplace is a potential job shadowing site.

Shadowing a job will give you an opportunity to ask questions and consider the potential pros and cons of a particular profession or industry. You will also discover what workplace skills and career-related experiences are essential to being successful in your chosen field. The job shadowing site can turn into a future employer, so make sure you leave your contact information with them in case there is a job opening.

Preparing for a job shadowing visit:

1) Research the employer and/or industry you will be observing.

2) Choose 10-15 questions to ask the employee you shadow.

3) Confirm the time/date.

4) Show up professionally dressed and on time

After the Visit:

1) Send a thank you note.

2) Take time to assess what you learned about the skills and work experiences needed to pursue your career interests. Are there skills you need to gain? What are you next steps?

Volunteering: Good for the soul and the resume!

Finding your ―niche‖ in the fields of education and psychology can at times feel a bit daunting, but volunteering allows you the opportunity to explore career options at your leisure. If you are interested in working within a particular field, what better way to gain experience than by volunteering?

In addition to gaining work experience, volunteering provides you the opportunity to network with individuals who might be able to help you in future job searches (to learn more about networking, go to page 47).

Volunteering can also help you develop new skills that could prove to be beneficial in future careers. Along with learning new skills, volunteering can clarify your values and help you gain a new perspective on life.

Volunteer work will not only positively impact your life, but it will also improve your resume. Employers like to see potential employees who are dedicated to bettering themselves by helping others. Furthermore, volunteer work on your resume can act as a testament to your character. Based on the type and amount of volunteer work you perform, employers will have a better idea of what kind of person you are and what kind of employee you would be.

Overall, volunteer work can be utilized in many ways that can help you with your career search.

Volunteering can guide you towards an area of interest, or steer you away from fields that might not be a good fit.

When it comes to your career, you want to do all you can to be sure that the field you have chosen is the field for you.

Information Interviewing What is it?

Interviews that occur when you are not applying for a specific position are informational. These interviews are opportunities to learn more about the organization and the career field.

Identifying Contacts First, identify contacts in career fields that interest you. The most effective method of finding and talking to such individuals is through personal referrals. Ask your parents, friends, relatives, professors, and career counselors for names of people they know. Utilize the Pepperdine Alumni Network to find contact information for Pepperdine alumni working in various career fields. LinkedIn is also a great resource.

The fixity of the law, by constraining the behavior of political actors, also improves the odds that the liberty and property of any individual...»
