International Job Shadowing Experience Pilot Program
Oct. 9, 2018 – Job shadowing has been around for many years, but adding an international component is a new twist on an tried and true way to learn. The new addition to the IFYE Association of the USA, Inc. (formerly International Farm Youth Exchange) program adds the opportunity not only to live with a host family, but to job shadow professionally with a member of the family as well.
A pilot program implemented by global agri-business leader Syngenta recently ended a successful exchange with Lisa Schmid, an IFYE from Germany. She lived and job shadowed three Syngenta professionals who work at the company’s Minnetonka, Minn., location.
