Texan Shadow Overview- Employer

  • The goal is to provide students with knowledge of the workplace, career exploration, and the opportunity to gain an understanding of the relationship between their degree field and the practical workplace.

  • Employers are expected to introduce their profession, industry or organization and exchange ideas with the student. Please tell the student about your responsibilities in the workplace, how you got started in your career, and maybe a tour of your workplace. Students really look forward to seeing you in your daily routine.

  • Shadowing also helps students see how their textbook learning can be applied in the real world.

  • Students can also learn much more about your company by experiencing it in the " trenches".
