Fairfield University's 2022 Job Shadow Program
Fairfield’s Job Shadow program connects students with alumni and parent professionals for either in-person or virtual career conversations during winter break.
This popular, rewarding program gives students a chance to begin planning for life after Fairfield by learning directly from alumni and parents about careers in a variety of industries.
Registration opens in early October and matching and notifications will take place in November.
Contact the University Career Center at email@example.com with any questions.
"I was able to gain a significant amount of knowledge about an industry and possible career paths in what I am interested in. I was happy with how approachable my match was and how he was very engaged in leading the conversation. I think the program was well adapted to the current environment."
— Kathryn Harrington ’22, Accounting
"I enjoyed hearing about their Fairfield experience, what their big takeaways were, and what resonated most with them. It's always fun reminiscing and hearing what's changed. I personally enjoyed creating a day where I could give as much exposure as possible, both in the sense of what I do at a marketing company, as well as showing how a business comes together. Teaching and mentoring individuals (especially Fairfield students) has always been something I'm passionate about so it was a pleasure to be involved."
