Hopkins EXPLORE program
A program especially for Freshman:

- Freshman students who are not sure what career path to pursue OR
- Freshman students who have a general idea about the career path they want to pursue AND

The EXPLORE program provides first-year, undergraduate Hopkins students the opportunity to shadow an alumni or employer host during Spring Break (March 18 - 22, 2013). Typically, the student will shadow or meet with the alumni or employer host for an afternoon or a one-day period during the Spring Break timeframe, based on mutual availability.Purpose:
The JHU Career Center encourages freshmen to explore various industries as they are deciding on a major and how it translates into a career choice. This unique career shadowing experience will match select students with an alumni or an employer host to provide real life exposure within the student’s career path of interest. Multiple locations will be represented so students can time their spring break visit home with the job shadow experience. Transportation and housing are the responsibility of the student. The visit could last an afternoon or up to several days, based on mutual availability. Hosts are volunteers connected to the JHU Career Center. The program is purely exploratory! Student participants will not be compensated and will not be eligible to receive academic credit for the job shadow experience.Next Steps:
