To empower youth with career profiles based around job shadowing interview videos, and to help them find the work they love.
Many young people select careers and education without having any experience in what someone in that industry really experiences on a daily basis. A small percentage of individuals do take the time to shadow a professional in their industry of interest before completing their education. However, unfortunately many don't, and they can be very disappointed or misdirected.
Through a wide selection of dynamic videos along with other pertinent information, we plan to help by providing a virtual shadowing experience to start the process of obtaining useful information to better understand what a particular career might involve.
How You Can Help
We are looking for individuals and / or groups who would be passionate, excited, and comfortable in sharing on video what their typical work day looks like. Through this process you will be able to help thousands of youth around the world, as opposed to a few locally, one at a time.
This project will include trades people to licensed professionals, simple work to the highly complex. Really any and all vocations that are family friendly are interesting to us!
Share This Opportunity With Others
If you know of others that you feel this project would be a good fit for, please feel free to forward this information to them.
The actual interview takes approximately 1 hour and the action shots usually take 30 to 45 minutes. Set-up and pack-up takes us approximately 1.5 to 2 hours (we do not need your assistance with this). So in total, we will be at your location roughly 3.5 to 4 hours.
You Are The Expert
Of course we couldn't even come close to sharing all that you know and do in your profession. The goal is a cursory look, just to get someone on the right path to explore more about your line of work.
You are the one that knows what is most important with your work and career path. The interview is simply a relaxed conversation with open ended questions. You choose how you answer, what is important, and whether to answer or not. The three main categories we like to cover are:
- Who are you? and What do you do?
What does your typical day look like?
What educational or training path do you recommend?
