Job Shadow at Sonoma Water

Sonoma Water's Job Shadow Program is available to high school students in our service area.  Students learn about a job by walking through part of the work day as a “shadow” to a Sonoma Water staff member. Job shadowing provides a unique opportunity for students to explore a career path and learn firsthand the responsibilities, skill requirements, and future outlook of a career field in an effort to make an informed decision when determining a career path.

Students are matched with a Sonoma Water employee based on the student’s career interests. The student will spend 2 hours immersed in the work environment, observe daily activities and ask questions.
