The juniors have been doing some things to prepare them for getting a job. First, they went to Career Day at Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville. At Career Day they got to explore three different career options. We asked some of our juniors what their favorite job selection was and why.

Kenzie Heikens - Athletic Training because she got to learn how to tape an ankle and then she got to tape Edgar and Isaac’s feet.

Lexi Stahly - Criminal Justice because she got to see people shoot things.

Kaitlyn Vyskocil - Music because she got to meet new people and she just really liked the music aspect of it.

Haley Norton - Criminal Justice because they got to use a simulator.

Isaac Ihnen - Athletic Training because it was cool to see what he has to do day to day and he got to learn how to tape an ankle.

Abdulla Elbuytari - Accounting and Business because they got to recreate Shark Tank and it was fun to do that.

Eddie Tapia - Engineering because they got to learn about windmills.

Naomi Sage - Human Resources because it was cool to see how many ways you can deal with certain situations.

The second thing the juniors have been doing to prepare is their upcoming job shadows scheduled for March 27. Each student gets to pick a job that they would like to pursue and take half the day to watch someone in that field. This will give them an opportunity to see what their profession does and all the things that go into their daily routines.

Hopefully by doing these things it will give the juniors more of a clue of what they want to do when they are older!
