Work Shadow Program
Explore your career interests with MavensWood
If you know the career path you want to take but are unsure of the best route for your personality or skillset, job shadowing is for you. MavensWood and its Portfolio companies offer unparalleled Work Shadow experience and can ask questions and learn new skills.
Work Shadowing is an unpaid experiential learning experience which gives you the opportunity to observe or converse with a professional in a job role/sector of interest to you. As such you will not be in receipt of a salary for the time spent with an organisation.
Who Can Apply
Graduate or Post-graduates
Graduates or Post-Graduates who want to take part in work shadowing either as part of their course credit or to gain experience.
High School Leavers
If you are completing a high-school or higher course and as a part of your coursework you need to have work shadow experience.
We particularly welcome career returners and women who had taken a break and want to restart their career.
How would you Benefit
You Test out Possible Careers
It’s a great idea to shadow someone in a role you aspire towards, as it will give you a better understanding of the qualities and skills required to do well within that position. Job shadowing at work allows you to try out different jobs without committing to something that doesn’t suit you. It’s also easier to change careers at a young age.
You learn about an Organization’s Culture
Job shadowing can help you determine whether this employer is the right fit for your personality, work style and beliefs. It provides an opportunity to see the environment you could be working in and the people in an organisation, too.
You get a glimpse of modern Enterprise Tools
Work shadowing and being on live projects will help you learn some of the most modern Enterprise Collaboration and Productivity tools. You will be exposed to advanced tools like Word, Outlook, ERP, CRM, OneDrive, ClickUp, DropBox, Zoom, Loom, WorkSnaps, Slack etc.
You build professional connections
As a young individual, it’s often difficult to gain professional connections, which could limit your opportunities in the future. By taking part in job shadowing, you can create relationships with people who may help further your career in the future. You’ll meet valuable contacts and build up your network.
