Job shadowing. It’s new to me and my school.
This is a guest post. My name is AurorA Bear, and I’m a freshman at Montpelier Public School. Last week our career counselor decided to send us all out on a job shadow for the first time in years.
I, being the writer-y person that I am, was sent to the Jamestown Sun. As part of the job shadow, I was invited to write a guest post.
To be honest, I was a little nervous, especially considering I’m the only one who went to the Jamestown Sun, but it’s actually been kind of fun. The entire experience has been… different than what I’m used to.
I’ve actually learned quite a bit. I’ve never really thought much about journalism, but it seems a lot different than my original thoughts on it. It seems a lot more free. In movies and such you see evil editors and extreme silence all of the time. From what I’ve been told today, that’s not true.
I’ve always known I needed another job to support my novel-writing pursuits. Journalism has now been added to my list of possibilities.
