Job Shadow

Recommended Posts

What are people's thoughts on putting job shadowing as a a point for diversity of experience. I'm torn between putting job shadowing or backpacking. Any thoughts on how to make my activities as strong as possible.

We would need far more detail about each of those two activities before being able to offer any real opinions on which would be better. Ultimately, it would depend on how much time was spent doing each, what the rest of your application looks like (ie. is the shadowing more of the same, or is it unique?), what you feel you learned from each, etc.

I'd put backpacking. I think you probably learned more about being independent and responsible for yourself during this experience. Also, you probably learned about different cultures and it may even have affected how you look at different groups of people. Versus shadowing a doc and deciding you want to be a doc.
