I like the idea, but I think it is a bit limited to how much your day is actually worth it. Why not a week? It would teach you way more and at the same time give you a more in-depth grasp of what it's like to do that job. I did something similar when I studied my Biomedicine degree: we spent a week following the work of a team of doctors from the Internal Medicine Unit. It was way better than a day, because we could follow up on things that started on other days, have more experiences and learn a wider array of things that we would have missed if we had only been there for a day.

This kind of experience could be more rewarding and people would be more enticed into making that kind of economic investment. Paying 100 dollars for a day's worth of information and experience could be worth it or a total waste of money. Investing money into a week of training and experiences would probably sound more appealling Also, spending a week there would allow you to form connections, and show a bit of who you are yourself, and those are normally the things that open the most doors in the job market.

I think we could all be very useful with our skills and knowledge in many other areas outside of our domain. A few months ago, we had a similar idea (https://brainstorming.com/ideas/unrelated-expertise-exchange-network/32), but this one has one big entry advantage - money. Instead of being paid by gained knowledge, meeting new people, and all the benefits of changing the perspective from which the specific problem is being watched, people could do it because of money, too. Not all people are ready to enter the "game" for a "chance to grow". Sometimes you need money first, to later understand the bigger value of it.

But it seems to me that the idea of getting smarter is the background of both, Darko Savic's and nanapublicbgosh's idea.

Hi nanapublicbgosh, I like this idea a lot. It seems you don't even need much to get the idea started and test the proof of concept. You can start by establishing a local agency in an area, find a handful of people who would like to learn from a local professional, then try to make it happen for them. A nice looking website and business cards would be a plus when approaching the professionals. Start locally, think globally.

In time, when the project becomes widely accepted maybe the state-funded employment agencies could cover the apprenticeship fees in some cases. People could put such apprenticeships on their resumes

Apprentices would need to be vetted somehow, to prevent potential bad actors from creating trouble for the professional. Maybe some kind of psychological evaluation test
