TWU Job Shadowing Program
What is the TWU Job Shadowing Program?
The TWU Job Shadowing Program, offered to undergraduate students, is a way to connect students with employers. The program serves as an opportunity for students to observe a professional work setting, gain understanding of an organization and its culture, and day to day business operations, which will aid in their self-exploration and future goals.
