91% of employers think that students should have ONE to TWO internships before graduating.” (Millenial Branding and Experience, Inc., 2012)

Randolph’s “Ultimate Shadow Experience” gives students the opportunity to have an insider’s view of a profession through observing and interviewing a sponsor in the work environment.

The experience assists you as you begin to explore your interests and learn about various career opportunities. Sometimes sponsors will allow students to spend time in different departments, so you can gain insight as to how different positions work within one organization. Occasionally, a student may even gain some limited hands-on experience. A typical job shadowing experience lasts only one day or can be as long as a week.
