The University of Miami UShadow program is an opportunity for students to develop career-related knowledge, skills, and values from direct experience. The program provides UM students an opportunity to “shadow” an alumnus or employer of the University of Miami throughout a typical workday. It is also an opportunity for you to mentor a student, re-connect with the University and see your professional experience in a new light. During the experience, students visit and interact with you during one workday. This interaction can take many forms, including a full- or half-day of shadowing, or a lunch meeting followed by a tour of your facilities. This experience can be structured in many ways and the goal is to provide an experience that offers a realistic understanding of a career field.
