“I was very much treated like an individual, (with a focus on) what my needs were and that gives you a lot of confidence.”
– David Aggio, Job Shadow Day participant, Roscommon EmployAbility.
Job Shadow Day is a fun and worthwhile day of awareness for jobseekers.
Hundreds of people from all walks of life take part every year.
A trained employment facilitator in your locality will coordinate the day with you and an employer in the area.
A system to support people with disabilities to get a fairly paid job of their choosing in the open labour market.
You will ‘shadow’ a professional for a day as they go about their normal working routine.
