Student Reflection - Project

Student Reflection

Now that you have completed your job shadowing experience, you will want to take some time to think about your future career plans. To start this process, respond to the following questions.

Describe the department you visited.

What type of work activities did you observe during your job shadowing experience?

What did you like best about your job shadowing experience?

What did you like least about your job shadowing experience?

What surprised you most about what you observed, heard, did and/or learned?

If you wanted to work in the department you visited, what might you do to prepare in the next five years both in high school and afterwards?

Would you consider a career in the career area you visited? Why or why not?

 II.             Procedure

The procedure is very simple.

 If you want credit from any subject area you must complete the assignment sections as described above and fill out all the forms as mentioned.  This must be done before the job shadow takes place.

If you want class credit contact your teacher first, and complete the forms before doing the job shadowing/interview.

This form is from the  Occupational Outlook Handbook.  This is an excellent source of information and reference.
