As an Employer you need to reach your future workforce with the right message. But how?
Opening your doors to let students job shadow is a great way to recruit the next generation of workers. But, in many cases, liabilities pertaining to minors, or budget and transportation challenges in the school system make traditional job shadowing increasingly difficult.
VirtualJobShadow.com is an effective digital solution that eliminates these challenges and delivers the workforce right into the classroom! We partner with Business, Industry and Schools to bring job shadowing directly to the students. Because we shadow real employees at real workplaces, the corporate culture shines through, providing additional value to our partners.

Increasing skills gaps and workforce shortages are some of the reasons Businesses participate in VirtualJobShadow.com. Too often, shortages are connected specifically to gender and ethnicity. A great way to encourage more girls into STEM pathways, for example, is to introduce them to inspirational women in STEM careers. It's an often overlooked concept, but all students need role models. Role modeling is a critical component to our educational agenda and we work closely with our Partners to shadow men and women of different ethnicities and backgrounds.
Enduring stereotypes in some trades have also impacted the ability to recruit a skilled workforce. Some sectors are facing severe challenges, with the need for workers only increasing. Though advanced technology has changed the face of many of these in -demand opportunities, the message is getting lost on the next generation of would -be employees.
Some companies want to brand their corporate culture to gain a competitive advantage in recruiting entry level employees. Other organizations find VirtualJobShadow.com a clever way to promote a new product line which is intrinsically tied to the educational job shadow. But all our partner Businesses participate because they support what VirtualJobShadow.com is fundamentally about - better preparing young people for the realities and demands of the working world.
