**Due to COVID concerns, Take a Logger to Work (TLW) will look different for 2021. We'll provide information about changes as soon as possible**
Meanwhile, please take a look at how the program functioned in years past. The goal is still the same...
To inspire young professionals, share specialized knowledge and experience about your field, and showcase your organization!
SAVE THE DATE: 2021 TBD
Take a Logger to Work occurs the week before students return for the spring semester. Hosts typically choose one day within that time period to welcome 1 to 5 students for a half-day shadowing visit.
Hosting Students (in a nutshell)
Think back to your time as a student. Would you have benefited from a shadow experience with a Logger alum or parent? We understand the impact alumni and parents can have on current students and this understanding is the motivating force behind this program. Take a Logger to Work provides alumni and parents with an opportunity to support the career development of young Loggers in a meaningful way.
An ideal shadow day for students may include:
- Touring your work site
- Observing interactions with customers, clients, and/or colleagues
- Networking over lunch
- Being introduced to your colleagues (especially Logger alumni!) and their roles
- Completing a case study*/mini project if appropriate
- Meeting at the end of the day to reflect on the experience
*If your daily workload involves client confidentiality, consider conducting a case study with students.
