The following materials are included in the six sections of the guide: (1) guidelines for having a successful GJSD; (2) frequently asked questions about GJSD; (3) understanding the roles of job shadow participants; (4) advance preparation for GJSD--activities and materials; (5) onsite activities and materials; and (6) post-GJSD activities and materials.
