  Serve as a Job Shadow Day Host

Introduce current Pepperdine students to your industry by hosting them in your workplace for a day or half-day shadowing experience on Job Shadow Day!

The Pepperdine Job Shadow Day Program is a structured matching process that introduces students to your organization and available positions through direct access and hands-on learning by shadowing you or another company representative in your workplace for a day or half-day experience. Job shadowing opportunities will not result in academic credit or monetary compensation, however, both hosts and student participants greatly benefit from this experience. Students will gain valuable insight to help them make informed career choices and upon their return to campus, become unofficial ambassadors that can speak to your organization's vision definition of success. For more information and to sign up as a Job Shadow Day host, click here.

Host up to 10 students in your home for a dinner party to share stories, pass on traditions, and invest in the lives of students. You can even invite a favorite faculty or staff member to join. For more information on how to host a Hang 10 Dinner, click here.
