A Day in the Life Job Shadowing Program by Professional Development

Apply for the "A Day in the Life" Job Shadowing Program

Staff members across the campus community dedicate themselves each day to supporting Carnegie Mellon’s mission and goals. A shadowing program, called “A Day in the Life,” is launching this October to provide an opportunity for staff to learn about how others are contributing to CMU and for staff to introduce others to their position and department contributions.

Sponsored by Staff Council and Professional Development Services, A Day in the Life is designed to provide staff with an opportunity to experience the university through a different lens and to engage in sharing ideas and forming relationships with colleagues throughout CMU. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the many ways in which all staff support and advance the mission of the university.

As a participant — either as a host or shadower — you will meet with a match for a suggested six hours over the course of six weeks, starting October 12 when A Day in the Life kicks off. To be considered as a host or shadower, or for more information, please visit the program website or email Apply now, as space is limited.
