Job Shadow Day offers key career insight

Seven Lake Forest College students attended the 2018 Medline Job Shadow Day to learn about the world of finance at Medline Industries and make important professional connections. 

The day included an overview of the company and the finance industry, a tour of Medline’s headquarters in the Chicago suburb of Northfield, lunch with recent graduates, and tips on the recruiting process. 

Carter Ostrander ’19 especially appreciated that “students could network with established business professionals from one of the largest manufacturers and distributors of medical supplies in the world.”

Medline’s job shadowing day aims to target undergraduates who have an interest in the healthcare industry and finance positions. In addition to Ostrander, Foresters Paige Bobos ’19, Ed Cleary ’19, Patrick Nolan ’21, Heath Ogawa ’19, Jacque Rogers ’20, and Justin Salonga ’18 attended the daylong program. 

According to Ostrander, these students have the Career Advancement Center to thank for the experience: “Through the hard work of the Career Advancement Center, a wide variety of valuable opportunities are open to Lake Forest College students. The Career Advancement Center is a great resource for students of all majors as they help provide opportunities that perfectly align with their career goals.”
