The Career and Professional Development Center offers students experiential learning opportunities that can help them navigate their unique career paths. The Take a Tartan to Work job shadowing program is an excellent resource that allows students to explore a career field by visiting a host professional at their business or organization. The first-hand experience can help them in choosing a major, assessing their fit in a work environment, or preparing for a summer or professional job search.
The Take a Tartan to Work Job Shadowing program is offered to undergraduate students each year during Winter and Spring breaks. During Winter Break, alumni from around the United States will be offering job shadowing opportunities between January 5-9, 2015.
To participate, students must apply online and submit a resume through TartanTRAK (beginning November 5th), our online job recruiting system. Students will be matched based on their industry interest and geographic region.
It is a great way for your student to connect with current CMU alumni and employers at great companies and to explore a career field while gaining valuable professional experience and networking contacts. And… a productive way to spend time off during their school break!
