This is a week where students have an opportunity to have a 'hands-on experience of their future careers' .Students experience a 'working day' where they shadow an employee within a private sector company for the whole day, asking questions, learning about the shadow partners career and the organization in general.
Job shadow creates a critical link between education and the workplace and inspires the students to want to be successful in work and life.Our goal is to inspire the students to work hard so as to fulfill their dreams.The students have a real experience of the importance of education so as to get them to their future careers as the shadow partners they have for the day.
Our common goal is to bring up a high caliber of future professionals who are motivated and understand the relevance of education in their future careers.
