Spider Shadowing

Experience career paths through the eyes of Spider alumni and friends of the University of Richmond with the Spider Shadowing program. Each winter and summer break, Career Services recruits volunteers to offer half- or full-day job shadowing experiences to current Richmond undergraduates. Job shadowing is an impactful way to learn about an industry, career path, or specific organization through direct exposure to the people, day-to-day work, and culture of a job. Spider Shadowing is open to all full-time undergraduate students and no industry experience is required to be matched with a shadowing opportunity.
