- Learn from a professional in your desired career or industry in a mentor/mentee experience
- Shadow a professional in your field for hands on experience
- Work in a non-profit developing your skills on a volunteer basis while contributing to the mission of the organization
- Interview a professional about their job, career path or education and learn about the challenges and successes that got them where they are today
