Winter Break Shadowing Opportunities 2024 – By Industry
Career exploration during the undergraduate years is critically important for Pitzer students. The opportunity to get an “inside look” at different professions or have an immersive experience in a potential career path can be a significant driver of student success in designing and executing a post-Pitzer career plan.
The Winter Break Job Shadowing Program matches Pitzer undergraduates with alumni and family hosts who can give students this valuable professional experience. For January 2024, our program is staying virtual! Our job-shadowing partners can host a student virtually for as little as 2 hours to a full day anytime during the first two weeks of January 2024. By shadowing their hosts, students will obtain in-depth information about what it takes to be successful in a specific profession and what roles interest them in a specific organization The student application deadline is Friday, November 10 by 11:59 p.m. PST.
All current students and students graduating in Winter 2023 are able to participate in the Winter Break Shadowing Program.
