The 2013 OSU Engineering Job Shadow Program is coming up! Job Shadow is a one day opportunity for OSU Engineering students to spend time at an employer’s site, observe engineers, and learn more about professional roles related to their majors. Students really love the program because they get to select the companies they visit…rather than the companies selecting them. The 2013 Job Shadow Program will take place during Spring Break, March 11th-15th 2013. Job Shadow takes place at company locations throughout Ohio.
