Pro-Am Day Job Shadowing Activities
Share |

If you’re interested in hosting a student but aren’t sure how to fill his or her time, there are plenty of activities that can both ease your workload and provide a valuable learning experience for your student. 

  • Review your student’s resume or portfolio.
  • Share your own resume and/or portfolio with the student.
  • Have your student participate in a brainstorm session, planning meeting or conference call.
  • Walk your student through some social media activities you are conducting with your clients. Ask for their ideas on how to engage their peers with your social efforts.
  • Allow your student to participate in a writing project (news release, media alert or pitch letter, etc.).
  •  Allow your student to assist with a media kit stuffing or mailing.
  • Walk your student through all components of a recent project or initiative, from initial plans to media materials to placements and results reports.
  • Conduct a mock interview with your student to preview what a real internship or job interview might involve.
  • Encourage your student to prepare interview questions for you and your colleagues; schedule a round of meetings where students can learn more about each person’s previous experience and responsibilities.
  • Provide your student with key messages or press materials from a recent project and interview recordings. Allow your student to observe the recordings to see how messages come to life. Discuss your student’s observations. Use print placements for a similar exercise.
  • Show and discuss a Classics entry your organization worked on and encourage your student to apply for a Student Classics award this year.
  • Have your student take your company’s writing test (if available).
