Today, I had the awesome opportunity to shadow Stacey Payne the Chief People Officer at Dig Inn!! As a Retail Executive, I loved learning about how Dig Inn really embodies its values consistently in all facets of its business.

My experience with JPD Studio was incredible! Jess and Julia were inspiring, professional and total badasses to shadow. I came away with a full picture of the career I was looking at and can’t recommend this experience enough! THANK YOU!

We believe that we can only determine what is best for us through experience. So, we set out to change the way we find new jobs. You wouldn’t get married without going on a date first, you wouldn’t buy a property without viewing it first, so why do we still go into jobs without trying them?
Browse by industry, category or city (once we roll out outside of New York). When you find an experience you’d like to try, create your profile and tell your host why you’re interested in shadowing them. Once the host approves your request, find your preferred time, check out and you’ll be on your way to your business adventure!
Hoppin is a platform that allows you to browse, list, and book job shadowing opportunities. Regardless of your background, age, and current career, you can experience a variety of professions and go behind the scenes of companies whether it's to explore a career change, learn, get inspired or just for fun!
All experiences range from half a day (4 hours) to two days, on average - a day! This length of time keeps the energy high for both parties and is enough to give the shadower a flavor of the job.
We believe in forming deeper connections and often see the magic unfold in the afternoon - after several hours of bonding time. A day with an engaged shadower brightens your routine and gives you and your team a chance to fall in love with your job all over again!
Absolutely not! Hoppin is a great way to learn and get inspired from others or just to try something new!
We’re constantly adding new hosts and experiences to our site, so make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter to stay updated. If there’s a particular company you’d love to go Hoppin at, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We currently only offer placements in the New York City Metropolitan Area. We are in the process of expanding and will be announcing hosts in new locations soon!
This is more like the world’s fastest internship where you can explore a job without the cumbersome application process, with no strings attached and for as little as a day! With Hoppin, you're paying for the experience, so you’re guaranteed to have a quality interaction with your host.
We work with amazing hosts who care deeply about what they do and are willing to invest their time to take you behind the scenes. Showing you around, sharing their story, and letting you get hands on with their business takes time and resources. It’s only fair to reward them for it.
Hoppin is a marketplace which means that hosts determine the price they charge for being shadowed.
The safety of our hosts and hoppers is our top priority. Every host and placement is screened by our team. All user and hosts have their identification verified and must sign our Terms and Conditions which protect both parties. We’re a trusted community of business adventurers and take pride in keeping everyone safe and happy.
Yes, cancellations made up to 72 hours before the experience are fully refundable. Cancellations made at a shorter notice are charged in full.
