Take Flight is a 1-5 day job shadowing program that provides students with the opportunity to visit companies and organizations to explore careers, network with professionals and learn about career options related to their major. The program will help clarify career goals, confirm career decisions and help you to understand what you learn in the classroom leads to success in the workplace. Job shadows take place over Spring Break 2013 (March 11–17, 2013).
If you have any questions about the Take Flight program, please contact the UNT Career Center at (940) 565-2705 or Nancy Eanes at (940) 565-2706.

Who can participate in Take Flight?
All students who are currently enrolled at the University of North Texas are eligible to participate.
Key Points to Remember
The job shadow experience is an un-paid and non-credit experience.
Students are responsible for transportation, lodging, and meals (if not provided). There will be no reimbursement for travel expenses.
Students will be required to attend a Take Flight Orientation BEFORE their job shadow if they are selected to participate. Orientation dates will be announced in the fall.
Once students accept a job shadow, they are committed. Students are required to complete the entire job shadow.
What To Do Next
Review the Employer list and decide which top three companies you would like to shadow over the Spring Break-March 11-15, 2013. Remember that most of the shadow experiences are only one day. Some companies/organizations may offer multiple days (example: hotels).
