Job Shadowing is a Win-Win situation
What is Job Shadowing? Job shadowing is spending an average work day with a professional or skilled employee to learn what they do each day. It's a way to see first hand where your career choice can take you. It's worth talking to your high school's guidance counselor about job shadowing at Big Bend Electric Cooperative (BBEC).
Students win by:
•Discovering just what it takes to make this job their career.
•Working next to professionals to develop their interest first hand.
•Seeing all aspects of the job.
BBEC wins by:
•Showing students career possibilities in their community.
•Helping in the development of the workforce BBEC will need in the future.
•Developing working relationships with schools in our area.

Who can “Shadow” a job at BBEC? Any high school student whose parent or guardian is a BBEC member
