Who: Rod (veteran) & Tim (job coach at Sycamore Services)

Job Shadowed: Weeks of February 27 & March 6

This spring, Rod, a veteran, and Tim, a job coach at Sycamore Services, spent time job shadowing in UIndy’s IT Department. Rod is considering a career shift into IT and wanted to determine if IT is the right fit for him. He spent 14 hours over two weeks talking with, observing, and job shadowing various members of UIndy’s IT team. Rod was so appreciative of IT’s willingness to help and the experiences he had. Tim is a job coach at Sycamore Services, an agency that helps people like Rod find employment.
