Job Shadowing Reflection

  • from my job shadowing experience i learned that i don’t want to be in planning
  • i would like to be a forensic anthropologist
  • the reason i would like this job is because you wouldn’t do the same thing everyday its a new adventure.
  • to get this dream job i would have to go to a lot college
  • on my presentation i think i did a good job considering that i don’t like speaking in front of everyone
  • i’m proud of my self for not being as nervous as i was last year of presenting
  • something i think i could have done better was looking at the class more
  • maybe next time i do a presentation i think i would like to try to put in a video on the subject so people can understand a little more.
  • i don’t think i want change the outcome of my presentation because i think i did a good job
  • i wish that i would have volunteered the first day to get it over with and get the extra points.
  • if i could do my presentation over again i wouldn’t wait until the end of the week to do it.
  • i wouldn’t keep looking at the presentation i would look at the audience.
  • the easiest part of my presentation was actually  the power point and finding out the information that i needed to put into the project.
  • the hardest part of the presentation i would have to say was getting up in front of the class and presenting long enough to make it within the 4 to 6 minute range
  • now that i reflected on my presentation i realize that i think i did a good job considering i hate talking in front of the class, having a time limit, and making sure that i don’t just read off my power point, and explain what everything means.

Mock interview reflection

  • While I interview a classmate made me feel more prepared for a interview. Seeing a interview from a employers perspective makes me more prepared because i know what type of questions will be asked.
  • When i was being interview by a classmate I wasn’t nervous because i knew that it wasn’t a real interview and that they were just classmates. In a real interview i would really nervous because of the fact that it’s up to that person to see if i get the job or not.
  • I feel that my response to the mock interview questions were not as good as i would have liked. I think i could have done a lot better than what i did. The question i found to be the easiest for me was how i feel about working with others and as a team.
  • Some advice i would give someone doing a mock interview is that you should pretend like it’s a real interview. Some advice i wold give to someone in a real interview is that they should do the best that they can so that they feel like they did all that they could do and if they don’t get the job it’s their loss.
  • If i was going to a real interview i would be more prepared for it because i would have it on a certain day at a certain time so i would know about it. If i went to a real a interview i would probably dress really nice, and professional. I would act like  a professional, i wouldn’t be loud or messing around.
  • I think that this activity was helpful because it helps us know what kind of questions are going to be asked at the interview. I think that this is a skill that you need in the real world because if you don’t have a job you don’t earn money you can’t buy food or live in a house, you would have no money for everything that you need.

Current News Post

This news article is about how a body was pulled from the Des Plaines River on Saturday April 18th, 2015 his name was Lonnie Jones. He was caught on video as he leaped from the Cass street bridge. His body wasn’t found until 8 days after he jumped. Lonnie Jones was reported missing 3 days after he had jumped. An officer saw him in the river and he body was pulled in at  the railroad street boat launch south if interstate 80 on the rivers west bank. Just hours before he jumped he posted a status on Facebook stating “And he said unto them, Go ye into the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” This was a bible verse. As he took his own life he was holding a bible. The autopsy was performed Sunday the 19th it was reported that he drowned. Lonnie was only 19.  I believe that this article was neutral, and as far as we know their telling the truth about what happened, their is no opinions in this article it’s all facts. To me if your going through anything that is bad and depressing you should talk to someone instead of taking your life. When you take your life your not the one mourning about it its your family and friends, nobody should have to feel like taking your life is the only option. Joliet Patch
