YOUR BENEFIT Why take a job shadow?
Help students find their way
Summarizing the results of PISA 2018 in Estonia, it is safe to say that compared to the 2015 PISA survey, the share of students who do not have an idea of their possible future occupation has increased (from 15% to 21%). You could say "So what? There's time." In reality, ignorance creates insecurity in young people entering independent lives and gives birth to random choices based on a limited perception of the possibilities of the world of work.
In the process of job shadowing, young people learn a lot about themselves and what they find interesting. We help students reach their potential, make informed choices and reach for their dreams!
Become more aware of your choices
The job shadow prepares at least 10 questions about your work and specialty. Sample questions will be sent to you by email. By explaining your work activities, goals, and challenges to others, they can also become clearer for you or become aware in some new way.
There have also been situations during job shadowing where the student's questions make the employee or entrepreneur think in a new direction. Young people have fresh eyes and may notice something that goes unnoticed by those inside.
Make a real-life impact
It may be that we've already bored you with this talk, but the kids are really looking for their own way. They are trying to understand themselves in order to set their goals and pursue goals. And can you imagine it when the search for a young person brings him or her into your company or your field after school? Think about how cool that would be!
You could have a real-life impact and change the direction of someone's life for the better. Thanks to you, there could be a new future innovator in your field. Thanks to you, someone may start their career in your company. Feel free to pat yourself on the back as you leave sneaky hints to your boss – so much can come from one job shadow!
