Two Men Working
Career and Professional Development is offering a job shadow program where employers can connect with WT students as a job shadow mentor. Employers can fill out our job shadow interest form, which will help us to better match the job shadow mentor with the WT student. Due to this program being in the first year, our first cohort of students will be limited to 10 students. Because of this, we will only be able to match students to 10 employers. We encourage any that are interested to apply, but hope you will understand that we may not be able to match you with a student this fall. Please fill out the interest form, by September 1st to be considered.
