Job Shadowing

Julian job shadowing II

By Zoe Melby

Throughout the months of March and April, Mrs. Roberts’ communications class and the juniors did job shadows. They went to different companies throughout Osceola, Clay, and Dickinson County. A representative from ILCC came in to give tips on the experience and also set up locations according to the students’ interests.

I interviewed some people about their job shadow, and everyone went to various places and enjoyed different things about it.

Brooke Luinstra, a junior, went to The Look Fashions. It is located in Spirit Lake, and it is a fashion industry. She enjoyed learning about the fashion industry and how it works.

Jaden Rueter went to KUOO, a radio station in Spirit Lake. He enjoyed getting to see the different areas. “I enjoyed getting a tour of the place and getting to see everyone’s specific parts of the radio business,” said Jaden.

Taylor Maranell went to Nelson Jewelry in Spencer. He liked watching the jeweler make a new pendant out of old rings and charcoal.

Tucker Elder went to Great Lakes Ready Mix, and he enjoyed getting a chance to ride in the concrete truck.

Peyton Christenson went to Niemeier Spine and Sports Chiropractic in Lake Park. He enjoyed getting to sit in on some of the appointments and learning about the different types of injuries that patients have.

Rylan Siemers went to the Lake Park Body Shop. He enjoyed learning more about the career and getting to talk to different people.

Julian Burdorf went to Spirit Lake Silver and Gold. He enjoyed getting to bend gold, playing with diamonds, and shooting lasers. (see picture)

Amani Abadie job shadowed the head engineer of Osceola County. She learned about the various projects that they do and how they create their plans. She enjoyed learning about and getting to see the projects.

Naomi Sage went to Rosenboom in Spirit Lake. Her favorite part was getting to train a robot.

Overall, the point of the job shadows is to learn about careers that you don’t know much about. The job shadows were very educational, and everyone who went learned a lot about different types of careers.
