How do I build a relationship with a professional?

I need letters of recommendations! And besides that, I'd like to actually get to know a professional in my intended career path to learn about daily work-life. But, so far, none of the ones I've met have really 'clicked' with me. Not to say they were not kind (they certainly were!), but none of them seemed very interested in mentoring or getting to know me. #college #career #veterinary #work-shadowing #lor

What is the best way to approach a veterinarian regarding job-shadowing?

Most veterinarian practices that I have run into or researched do not have a student program which allows for internships or volunteering--they are simply medical practices. However, shadowing a vet can give great insight into deciding if the vet-path is a good career path for a student and most schools require x number of hours of vet-shadowing. How can I approach vets about shadowing? Is cold calling a good idea? Emailing? Also, how can you negotiate shadowing for a long period of time (months, rather than just one weekend)? #internships #veterinarian #veterinary #volunteering #veterinary-medicine #volunteer #work-shadowing #shadowing

How does a student interested in engineering find a shadow position?

I'm a dual credit high-school/college student looking to major in electrical engineering. I am not 90% that this would be the best card for me to play, so I'm attempting to figure out if I am suited to go into this field. All of my academic scores, personality tests, and interests seem to say that it would be a good fit, but I am not certain. My personality is very tactile, so it is much more helpful for me to experience or observe what a job takes, rather than read a list of responsibilities. Unfortunately, I don't know any practicing electrical engineers! How can I find a professional to shadow? #engineer #career-choice #electrical-engineer #work-shadowing
