About the Program

Job Shadow Experience Week gives University of Bridgeport undergraduate students the opportunity to shadow an alumni working in a field related to their desired  career path for a day. During the shadow day, the student will gain insight on what a day in the life of a full-time professional is like and learn valuable lessons on industry trends.
