Job Shadow Day: Serve as a Host

Take a Wave to work!

The Pepperdine Job Shadow Day program connects current undergraduate students with employers, alumni, parents, and community partners for a one-day or half-day job shadowing experience. Students are matched with host professionals in the Greater Los Angeles area to provide them with exposure to a wide variety of career fields and industries. Serving as a Job Shadow Day host is a great opportunity to mentor Pepperdine students and spread branding and awareness of your company/organization and available positions through direct access and hands-on learning.
