This is a good project for high school students to get them ready for life outside of high school. Students can do this during their vacation (winter break, spring break, etc). Students will go to work with a parent, family member, neighbor, etc and shadow this person for a day.
Before shadowing the person the student should do some research on that career and the company. Students will present their findings to the class. This is a valuable lesson where students can learn about different careers with their own hands on experience and the experiences of their peers.
