We invite the heads and specialists of companies to take part in the AEB initiative - Job Shadow Days from 11 to 21 May 2017! Job Shadowing is the Corporate Social Responsibility project of AEB members and has been implemented in Belarus since 2014.

What is the Job Shadow Days?

Job Shadowingis a popular on-the-job learning practice. The point of the program is to familiarize a student with a profession through shadowing an experienced person (mentor) in a real work environment during a work day.

What are the benefits for businesses?

The companies which have already participated in the initiative point out that Job Shadowing is an effective tool for a new job training of employees and head-hunting of those who share the corporate spirit of the company. The benefits for companies:

●     being a mentor boosts the employee’s self-esteem and motivation, makes him more confident, shows the recognition of his high competencies by the employer;

●     the engagement of the best and motivated students with fresh ideas and opinions, who can be invited to an externship in future;

●     obtaining of future efficient and loyal employees whose achievements were noticed during the JSD;

●     the opportunity to look at your job from a different angle and to remember the  start of the career, your job expectations;

●     white PR and the goodwill of student community to your company. Each student gives feedback about the day in the company, then the AEB team makes and publishes the article with photos on the site;

●     the issue of “Otdel kadrov” magazine № 10, 2015 was dedicated to the previous participants of JSD.
