What is a Job Shadow?
A job shadow allows you to observe and “shadow” or follow around one or more people in your potential field while they work. While a job shadow is brief in nature (currently, Altman, Rogers & Co. offers job shadows that are half-day to a full-day in length), it provides an idea of a typical day is for, in this case, a CPA or other professional working in public accounting. Job shadows don’t provide much opportunity to gain experience or “hands-on” work, but it offers a glimpse of a ” work day” in the life of a public accountant.
What is the benefit to you?
Having doubts about your field of study or what type of career you want to pursue? A job shadow can help clarify what to expect in a CPA’s typical work day. Public accounting is different than private accounting, and a job shadow can help one identify the differences and the similarities and clarify which path a student wants to pursue.
