SBS Shadows Application

Before you fill this out...
Please review the shadowing opportunities in CareerConnect before completing this form, as you will need to indicate which opportunities you plan to apply for. To access the list, login to CareerConnect using your UMass login > click Employers > Employer Directory > put SBS in the keyword search bar > choose UMass SBS Career & Professional Development > choose Available Positions. You will see the list of host sites, and can click through to get additional information on each one.
Completing this form is part one of a two-part process. This form will serve as an overview for any of the shadowing opportunities for which you choose to apply. You only need to complete this form once. For part two, you will submit your resume to the position through CareerConnect, and complete a short essay form. You will find the link for that form posted in each position application details section.

Shadowing Preferences
You may apply for one or two job shadowing opportunities, and be matched with a maximum of two per session. Please note that if you apply for and are matched with two, you will be expected to complete both shadowing opportunities. IMPORTANT: List the opportunities you are applying for by the TITLE used in the CareerConnect posting, and the organization NAME (if it’s not already in the title). If applying for two opportunities, please do so in order of preference.
The ideal sites are those within commuting distance to your home or a place you can stay. There are no reimbursements for travel or accommodations.
