The offices of Career Development and Calling and Alumni and Parent Relations are launching a pilot job-shadowing program, May Work-A-Day.
We've teamed up to help students gain experience, enhance their job readiness and discover the many facets of work. We also hope to engage alumni willing to bring students into their workplace.
