Human resources shadow program

Sometimes, individuals prefer to get a real-world view of a career before attending a medical information session, or afterwards to make sure it is a career path they wish to pursue. That's where the HR shadow program comes in. This program provides a one-time, observation-only experience that is two to four hours in length. Interested individuals are assigned to an employee in their area of interest and shadow them for a few hours of their work day.

Please note the following: 

  • Not all departments are available to shadow. 
  • A shadow session will not be scheduled until a shadow program packet is turned into Human Resources. Call the HR recruitment team at 970.495.7800 (PVH) or 970.624.1240 (MCR) with questions.
  • This program does not satisfy post-secondary school requirements.
  • This shadow program differs from the nursing shadowing program offered to new grads and hires.
