EagleShadow & Virtual Job Shadow

Virtual Job Shadow - NEW!

Virtual Job Shadow is an online program which empowers students and job seekers to easily search for career choices by experiencing unlimited job shadowing visits across the spectrum of Career Clusters. The camera crews go behind the scenes with real professionals in actual jobs and provide an in-depth look at workforce realities, showcasing what people do in their occupations and the education and skills needed.  There is no better way to relate school subjects to the world beyond the classroom than Virtual Job Shadow!

Experience your future career here!

EagleShadow

The EagleShadow Program connects students with employers, community partners, alumni, and friends of TCC for one-day job shadowing opportunities.  Job shadowing allows students to observe full-time professionals on-the-job, experience a typical workday, explore a variety of career fields and get a sneak peek into their future industry!

Though generally not for credit or pay, job shadowing provides many benefits. Participation in job shadowing can:

  • Help clarify career and professional goals
  • Connect classroom learning to real-world application
  • Allow for exploration of a wide variety of career fields & industries 
  • Practice professional networking and make contacts, which may make finding and acquiring future internships or full-time opportunities easier

Due to COVID-19, we will be placing students into job shadowing experiences, on an individual, first-come, first-serve basis. 
Apply to the EagleShadow Program here.

We no longer place students into job shadowing opportunities in the Clinical Healthcare Field.
However, there is additional information below that may assist you.  Thank you for your understanding!

If you are interested in participating in a job shadow opportunity in a medical facility,
we have several suggestions including:

  • Visit the job shadowing information page for TMH (Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare) - https://www.tmh.org/careers/shadowing-and-observing
  • Visit the job shadowing information page for CRMC (Capital Regional Medical Center) - https://capitalregionalmedicalcenter.com/about/volunteers.dot
  • Create a LinkedIn profile and begin building an online professional network - LinkedIn has several features that can help you connect with individuals through contacts you already have.  The “Find Alumni” search tool is an easy way to connect with alumni of TCC (and other Colleges & Universities) to ask about potential job shadow opportunities
  • Ask friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, professors, peers or former employers/supervisors for opportunities to shadow in their workplace
  • Visit the company you want to shadow, present yourself professionally (with a copy of your resume) and ask about job shadowing opportunities
  • Attend local networking events - a good place to start is The Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce (click the Events tab)
