NEWS: Davidson Offers Students Reimbursement for Job Shadowing Program


To help Davidson students take part in the 2014 Job Shadowing Program, the Center for Career Development is making funds available to help offset travel and accommodation expenses.  Eligible expenses can include transportation and housing.  The minimum required to apply for funding is $50 in expected costs.  Expense reimbursements may range from $50-$200, depending on distance being traveled and necessity for an overnight stay. Please see the details below:

In order to receive funding for the Job Shadowing Program, Davidson students must:

  • apply to shadowing experiences on WildcatLink between October 27 and November 10, be selected for a shadowing experience and carry through as a participant in the program.

  • have had your resume approved by Career Development staff prior to applying to positions.

  • conduct one practice interview using the online platform InterviewStream prior to reimbursement deadline, December 1.

Students can apply for funding through this program November 20 – December 1.  Though we will make every effort to help each student who applies, should we be forced to choose among eligible students, priority will be given to students as follows:

  • Students with demonstrated financial need through Davidson.

  • Students who are offered multiple experiences through the shadowing program.

  • Students with the greatest anticipated expenses to participate.

Students will be notified of the maximum amount they may be reimbursed and have two options for receiving the funds:

  1. Prior to the shadowing experience, the approved amount can be deposited into your Davidson Student Travel Fund.  Upon return to campus in January, receipts and unused funds must be submitted to the Center for Career Development.

  2. After participation in the experience, students can submit proof of expenses (in the form of original receipts) and will be reimbursed for the amount spent or the maximum reimbursement allotted (student will receive the lesser of the two).

If you have any questions about the Job Shadowing Program or this reimbursement opportunity, please contact Jamie Stamey, Assistant Director for Internships in the Center for Career Development.
