Scots on the Spot Job Shadow Sponsor Volunteer Form

 

Scots on the Spot Job Shadow Program Logo

Take a Scot to Work! Please fill out this form if you are interested in hosting an Alma student at your place of employment. We are looking for energetic professionals who are willing to share their vocation, passion, and story with students! The goals of the program are:

  • To connect community professionals and current students, opening the door for future mentoring, internships, or job shadows
  • To expose students to various careers and vocations
  • To give students a snapshot of various workplaces, both in physical space, culture, and mission

Activities you may wish to consider: a tour of your facility; brief (15 minute) informational interviews with others in your organization; taking the student out for lunch or to the cafeteria on-site; meetings with clients or co-workers; review of your calendar, demonstrating what you do on a weekly basis; and/or provide feedback on the student’s professional portfolio (resume and LinkedIn profile).

It is the responsibility of the sponsor to complete any necessary paperwork that your organization may require and to obtain permission from your supervisor/organization to host the student. You may wish that the students sign a confidentiality agreement. If your organization requires a background check, please indicate that in the additional comments section.

Students will be screened and required to complete an orientation where we will review appropriate informational interview questions, company research, and more. If we find a great match for you, we will email you and the student to connect and discuss details.
