Hospital, University Host Annual 'Shadowing Day' for Students
Once again, the University and the Hospital successfully hosted 9th grade students from South Philadelphia High School, giving the youths a day-long, inside view of a variety of career opportunities.
On "Shadowing Day," students are paired with employee mentors to learn about a particular career or environment.
"Our mentors at Jefferson involve students in their everyday work and might even take students on their rounds, into staff or client meetings and to computer or technical facilities, and more," says Susan S. Miller, Administrative Liaison, Hospital Administration and Hospital Shadowing Day Coordinator. "Students want to know all about their mentors so that they can see what the mentor brings to his or her position."
"We have always found our student visitors eager to observe how workers communicate and relate to co-workers," says Linda Mitchell, Manager, Employee Selection and Placement, Human Resources, and Coordinator for Jefferson University Physicians and the University.
At the end of Shadowing Day, students hopefully will come away with a better understanding of the educational skills and preparation necessary for doing a job well.
"Jefferson thanks all employees who gave of their time, knowledge and commitment to make Shadowing Day 2000 a success," says Ms. Miller.
