Job Shadow Day

WCM is excited to bring Job Shadow Day to Calgary in October 2022!

WCM is inviting Calgary schools to send grade 12 female-identifying and non-binary high school students to spend a day downtown in the financial district and learn more about careers in finance.

Job Shadow Day is a free, day-long event, featuring interactive workshops, networking and mentoring sessions, presentations profiling women with diverse careers in finance, and an afternoon of job shadowing with a mentor who works in the industry. Job Shadow Day gives students a first-hand view of what a career in finance can look like.

Job Shadow Day has been run in Toronto since 2004 and we are excited to bring this event to other Canadian cities.

Your students should attend to:

  • Learn more about rewarding career opportunities in finance
  • Understand more about the pathways into these careers. Including; courses to take in post-secondary and how to land summer internships
  • Hear positive messaging about the industry and break down myths associated with working in finance


8:30 - 12:00: Interactive Sessions at RBC

12:00- 12:30 pm: Students to travel in pre-assigned groups to afternoon firms

12:30 - 3:30 pm: Students attend 1 afternoon firm for job shadowing and presentations
