Job Shadowing Program

Job Shadowing is a great way for liberal arts students to explore a variety of business careers, make new connections and gain insight into their preferred industry. This experience can help you find an internship, job, volunteer or fellowship opportunity that aligns with your strengths, skills, interests and values.

Students in a room

Students should explore the College's network of alumni and personal contacts for shadowing opportunities. 

  • The Alumni Job Shadowing Program is run through the Center for Career Development through Handshake and is open to all class years and is offered during winter and summer breaks. Students are matched with Holy Cross alumni and spend a half to a full day shadowing. For more information on how to participate in the Holy Cross Alumni Job Shadowing Program contact the Center for Career Development at
  • For students who use personal contacts to identify a job shadowing opportunity, not through Career Development, please report your job shadow information here.


The College's Alumni Job Shadowing Program is offered every winter and summer break through the Center for Career Development Office. Info session and deadline dates can be found through Handshake.
