Set Up Your Own Job Shadow
While the official alumni job shadow program occurs in May, you can arrange your own job shadow anytime with an alum using Eagle Exchange.
The Alumni Job Shadow Program is an opportunity to explore a field or job function of interest. Using Eagle Exchange, Boston College's online mentoring platform, the Career Center will match you with a Boston College alum who will host you for a one-day job shadow after the semester ends in May.
