Job Shadowing

Our son has to find a job shadowing opportunity.  He is looking in the medical or mechanical field.  Any ideas??  They suggest a family friend in these industries, but we don't know anyone.  Any suggestions? I have e-mailed Watson Clinic to see if they have any opportunities, but thought there must be some Moms out there in the same predicament or who have gone through this.  Thanks.See More
