High school students visit a Micron site for a day. Based on career interests, they’re matched with professionals who show students where they work, share job details and let students glimpse a “day in the life” at Micron. Lunch is provided, and experts answer students’ questions.
Students must register for the job shadow program, which is offered at Micron’s Boise campus and expanding to other sites soon.

Students should bring their curiosity. Lunch is provided, and we work to accommodate food sensitivities and allergies. Students are welcome to bring backpacks, small bags and personal items upon request, but these need to be coordinated with the Micron program manager.
We recommend students wear clothing appropriate to school or the workplace. We also encourage comfortable close-toed shoes for walking.
The job shadow is typically a single day and ends within the school day.
