Job Shadowing

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.

Jobs we have that you can “Shadow” at BBEC include:

  • Power Lineman
  • Accounting
  • Engineering
  • Member Services

Who can “Shadow” a job at BBEC? Any high school student can arrange a job shadow through their high school guidance counselor.
