Pursuing a Site
ONCE YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN PERMISSION TO PURSUE FROM THE LTI COORDINATOR, it is time to go get your Shadow Day!!!
FIRST... make sure that your resume and cover letter are updated and perfect. Also make sure that you have signed your cover letter.
SECOND... fax the cover letter and resume (in that order) to the site, or email the cover letter in the body of the email, and attach your resume. Some sites may not use faxes. Some might not use email much. Use your judgement.
THIRD.... wait half a day to a full day after sending your packet and then call. You want to give them time to look over your email or fax. Or call when you indicated you would do so in your cover letter.
I got the shadow day! What is next?
Make sure to confirm the date and time of the shadow day, and ask how you should dress.
Let your advisor know that you have a shadow day. Give your advisor all of the information (site name, host name, site address, etc.).
Confirm your form of transportation to and from the shadow day site.
