Fairfield University Alumni Job Shadow Program
This program is a valuable opportunity for students to learn directly from successful alumni (and parents) about what they studied while at Fairfield and how they transitioned from college to career.
Alumni and students complete a brief registration, which provides the information needed to create matches based on industry interests. Once the matching is complete, students will reach out to alumni to schedule a career conversation. These career conversations can take place virtually or in-person, whatever is most convenient.
Contact the University Career Center at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Feedback from the Alumni Job Shadow Program
(A career exploration program for juniors and seniors)
"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."

"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."
