Job Shadow Program

From classroom to career: exploring career interests through industry experiences.
In this Section

The Job Shadow program is designed to connect UW-Stout students and employers over winter break. Job shadowing allows students to get an insider’s view and experience a day in the life of a professional working in a career field of interest. It also allows employers to connect, mentor and build relationships with current UW-Stout students. This program is coordinated by UW-Stout Career Services. 


  • Job shadowing experiences take place during Winter Break between January 6-25, 2025
  • Job shadowing experiences are one day (minimum of 6 hours) 
  • Exact date and time of the job shadowing experience is scheduled at the discretion of the matched student and host employer 
  • Students visit the job site to observe day-to-day activities of a professional in a career field of interest
  • Employers share knowledge about their professional position and answer questions about their career field and company/organization 
  • Students do not receive academic credit or payment for this experience 
  • Students are 100% responsible for their own travel arrangements, lodging, and any other expenses
