My job shadow was on October 22, 2019.
My shadow was in Sioux Falls, SD, in an office building
I shadowed a self-employed therapist.
I was able to shadow an actually patient.
The email told me that I was supposed to be there at 8:45 when it was really 9:00.
Somewhat, I'd like to help people but I don't think I want all of the work and stress that comes with being a therapist.
I would like to shadow something in art, maybe in advertisement or comic creation.

My job shadow was November 19, 2019.
My job shadow was in sioux falls SD in a little town complex.
I job shadowed a couple people that taught about installing electrical wiring.
The best part was it being hands on work.
The worst part was that it was very painful when you get shocked.
Yes I am. I am applying this summer.
I am not sure.

1. My job shadow was on October 30th from 8:30 to 11:30.
2. My shadow was at New Tech High School.
3. I shadowed the history teacher George Hawkins
4. I'd have to say the best part of my shadow was just seeing the school itself. It was a much different environment from what I'm used to.
5. The worst part of the shadow was that I forgot my ID and Computer, meaning I didn't have my forms. Luckily my dad was able to get it to me in time.
6. I'm no longer considering a career in teaching. While it certainly seems like a fulfilling career path, I found that my interests are in other fields now.
7. If I had to shadow in another field, it most likely would have to do with the graphic design/music industry.

4. The best part I would say would be seeing all of the unborn babies as well as how happy the parents were.

6. I think this would be a great job to consider. Not too much extra school work. And the fact I have always loved babies.
7. I would love to shadow there again, but maybe shadowing a police officer would be interesting.

1. My job Shadow was on October 23rd from 10:45am to 1:45pm.
2. My job shadow was with the Sioux Falls Police Department.

1. My job shadow was on Tuesday, October 29th, 2019, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
2. I shadowed at the Siouxland Downtown Library. The address is as follows: Siouxland, Downtown Library, 200 N Dakota Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57104.
3. I don't know exactly who all I shadowed, as I shadowed a variety of people in various departments, but I do remember the head of the department, Daniel Neeves.
4. I would definitely say that the best part of my job shadow was being able to interact with the many people I came across. I loved being able to socialize freely with the people I was shadowing and the people that came in for help at whatever position I was shadowing at the time.
5. I would definitely say the worst part of the shadow was not being able to spend more time at the information desks (I can't remember the specific names for them). There are two desks, both of which involved me directly speaking and helping anyone that required it. I met lots of people while helping out there for that hour, and I liked it very much. Sadly, I was only at the position for an hour before I switched, and I wish I had spent more time there.
6. Yes, I am still considering this career field, but only as a backup, as I do hope to become a psychiatrist or psychologist in the future.
7. If I were to shadow again, I would definitely like to shadow within a medical career field. Specifically, something to do with mental health (i.e. psychiatry or psychology). However, I do understand that the possibility of that happening is very slim due to patient confidentiality. Still, I would love to shadow in that career field.

1. My job shadow was on Thursday, November 7, from 3:30-4:00
2. My job shadow was at West Central High School in Hartford, SD.
3. I shadowed Chad Morrison, the athletic trainer for West Central High School.
4. I'd say the best part of my job shadow was getting to see how some of the injuries are wrapped like, the ankle, hamstring, knee, and shoulder. As well as getting to talk about why he wanted to be an athletic trainer.
5. The worst part was on how short it was, as well as not being able to go outside to see what he does out there. Otherwise it was fine.
6. Yes I still am considering this career path. If a person is hurt I'd like to help them get better again and give them workouts that will help with their injury.
7. If I were to shadow again I would like it to be in law enforcement.

1. My job shadow was on Wednesday, November 13, from 9:00-11:00.
2. My job shadow was at Sanford Research Center at the Kareta Lab in Sioux Falls, SD.
3. I shadowed Michael Kareta, a Principle Investigator, Madeline Kamp, a lab technician, and Hannah Wollenzein, a graduate student performing experiments for her dissertation.
4. The best part of my job shadow was learning about all the education and training they got, along with seeing them perform experiments. I also enjoyed going into the labs to look the cells under the microscope.
5. The worst part of my job shadow was when they used science jargon that I didn't know. I also disliked how little interaction they have with people.
6. I am considering this job field because I love science and studying things I am interested in. I am perhaps not considering this field because it seems like there are several things that I dislike to do, like writing about science.
7. If I had to shadow again I would like to shadow a Ob-Gyn.

1. My shadow was September 16 from 8 am to 12 pm.
2. My shadow was at Dakota Large Animal Clinic in Harrisburg.
3. I shadowed all three of the vets at Dakota Large but I mostly followed DVM Nate Earl.
4. The best part of my shadow was seeing all the horses and other animals.
5. The worst part of my shadow was that I really can't see any of the small animals getting checked out because the rooms were so small. There were not a lot of horse appointments so I did a lot of standing around.
6. Yes, I am still considering this career field, mainly because I love working with animals. Although there are ups and downs in this career field I know that it is rewarding in the future.
7. If I was to shadow again I would do the same thing in place because I wanted to see a lot more horse. The vet said that they have a lot more horses in the spring.

1. My job shadow was on Monday, November 11, from 9:00-12:30.
2. My job shadow was at Avera Medical Center in the Women's Specialty Clinic.
3. I shadowed Lisa VanGerpen who is a Certified Nurse Midwife.
4. The best part of my shadow was watching how the CNM interacted with her patients. She did lots of ultrasounds, so I heard the heartbeats of the babies. I also liked talking to her about the education needed for this job.
5. The worst part of my shadow was having to stand most of the time. The rooms were very small so there weren't many places to go.
6. I am still considering this career field because I really enjoy helping people and learning more about health careers. I would love to learn more about becoming a Midwife, and it is something I will definitely look more into.
7. If I was able to shadow again, I would like to shadow an OB/GYN to see how similar the two jobs are.
