You will be notified of your matching status in mid to late November and, if a match is made, you will be provided with information about the student you will be hosting.
What are my responsibilities as a shadow host?
In agreeing to host a student for A Day in the Life, you are expected to provide a one-day job shadow experience for your student. You will not be required to provide transportation, food, compensation, or any overnight accommodation for students, but may do so if you choose.
Create a comprehensive schedule for your student shadow to allow for maximum exposure to what you do. You might coordinate for your student to observe what you do, attend meetings, meet with your colleagues in other departments, become familiar with specific software you use on a regular basis, work on projects, talk with HR about the hiring process/timeline, meet with clients, attend site visits, tour facilities, ask you questions, and more!
Most shadows take place on a single day during winter break, but you may also modify the experience by having a student shadow for more than one day or during spring break if that would better suit both your needs.
