Job Shadowing Program

Printer-friendly version

Feb. 13 - Aug. 31, 2017

Sponsored by the Faculty of Information Alumni Association (FIAA), the Job Shadowing program offers current iSchool students an essential opportunity to:

  • Gain valuable insights from current information and museum professionals
  • Form, develop, and cultivate their personal networks and connections
  • Expand their realm of experience 

A few important notes:

  • Students are responsible for contacting their hosts to arrange a mutually convenient time for the visit, between February and August. No classes will be held during Reading Week, so students may want to visit during that time. 
  • Students can sign up to shadow only one host during the first week of the program, to allow as many other students as possible to participate. If you sign up to one host and want to switch to another, please cancel the signup you no longer want.

REGISTRATION OPENS FEBRUARY 13

Requests for registration and questions can be directed to jobshadow [dot] ischoolatutoronto [dot] ca

Due to technical problems with the server, direct log in and registration is not functioning. Students must e-mail jobshadow [dot] ischoolatutoronto [dot] ca to request their top three choices of host organizations for job shadowing. They will receive contact information for the first available host organization of choice.

Please remember that participating hosts are volunteering their time, and may plan activities specifically for this program. It is expected that all students who register follow through on their commitments.
