Shadow a Hawk

The Career Development Center at Saint Joseph’s University organizes the University job shadow program, Shadow a Hawk.  This program will provide students with the opportunity to observe alumni and employer professionals for the day to experience their work environment, company culture, actual workplace tasks and skills in order to gain further understanding about a potential career. 

The goals of the Shadow a Hawk program are to:

  • provide students with experiential learning
  • encourage discernment of students’ professional goal
  • build a pipeline of talent early for employers and students
  • build students’ networking skills
  • strengthen relationship between alumni and students
