Cameron University offers job shadowing event to local employers

Groundhog Day 2009 will not only provide a weather prediction, it will also offer a great opportunity for Cameron University students and local employers, as Career Services in the Office of Student Development announces the first "Take An Aggie To Work" Job Shadow Day, scheduled for February 2, 2009. The event is designed to provide students a real-world connection to the local employment community and will enable them to develop a unique perspective on their career interests and options.

 "We are looking forward to working with employers in Lawton, Duncan and other communities in southwest Oklahoma to provide a great day of learning for our students," says Cathy Billings, Student Development Specialist. "This is a prime opportunity for professionals who are passionate about their chosen profession to mentor students who may be looking for guidance in determining their own career path."

CU is offering community employers a unique opportunity to help students experience an up-close look at a "day in the life" of a professional. Companies who are interested in hosting students - either individually or in groups of two or three - for this half-day learning experience are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Development at 581-2209 for more information and an application form. Applications must be submitted by October 31st.
