Would you pay for a service that allowed you to shadow people in your profession of interest?

My answer to Would you pay for a service that allowed you to shadow people in your profession of interest? on Quora

As a high school student I would not have paid for this. It’s a big gamble (what if I spend money only to find out that the career doesn’t interest me), it relies on me having a good idea about what I want to do first (which I didn’t), it’s something I can get for free elsewhere by taking to friends of family, and I didn’t have any money to spend anyway.
