However, all majors are welcome to apply. The student that would benefit most from this job shadow opportunity is a student who wants to learn about how a public information officer in the public sector works to inform our residents of key services and information. A student who wants to learn about creating press releases, media interview talking points, marketing and communications material to tell the City of Phoenix story would benefit most.

This is part of the UA Job Shadow Program (JSP). The JSP is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to gain first-hand exposure to a career field and be mentored by actual professionals. Unless otherwise noted, the experience is one day long and will take place sometime during Spring Break, March 5-9. This is not an employment opportunity and future employment with the organization is not associated with this program. You may apply to no more than 5 JSP opportunities, and if accepted, you must attend a JSP orientation before receiving the contact information for your host. For more information, please visit
