    The Job Shadow program pairs students with host professionals in the greater Syracuse area for one day of intensive and rewarding career exploration.  The student shadow will visit the host’s workplace, discuss his/her career path and job responsibilities, and generally observe the host during a typical workday. Alumni volunteers and students who are matched with each other will be notified.

    Students get the chance to sharpen their career focus, gain industry contacts, and enhance their confidence in their professional skills.  To apply, fill out this 
    application for job shadowing and return to RH 342 by December 9, 2016.

    When the time comes to look for a job, nothing is more valuable than experience. Last year more than 200 students honed their skills and gained a sneak peak at their professional lives by completing internships around the country. Le Moyne student interns have worked for a variety of prestigious companies and organizations, including ABC, Anheuser-Busch Companies Inc., Bank of NY Mellon, ESPN, Habitat for Humanity, JP Morgan Chase and Lockheed Martin. The staff in the Office of Career Advising and Development helps to connect students to these internship opportunities. Learn More
