Job Shadow Program

Job Shadow at the Water Agency                                                                                         

The Sonoma County Water Agency's Job Shadow Program is available to high school students in our service area.  Students learn about a job by walking through part of the work day as a “shadow” to a Water Agency staff member. Job shadowing provides a unique opportunity for students to explore a career path and learn firsthand the responsibilities, skill requirements, and future outlook of a career field in an effort to make an informed decision when determining a career path.

Students are matched with a Water Agency employee based on the student’s career interests. The student will spend 2 hours immersed in the work environment, observe daily activities and ask questions.
