"I enjoyed that the people that were interviewed were regular people with a dream, and didn't have this handed to them and they had to work for it."


"I really enjoyed that it was like I was standing there watching it happen."




"What I enjoyed most about the Virtual Job Shadow experience I just viewed is that when she was attending the patient, she wanted him to feel in comfort. If I were a nurse, which is my dream, I would want the patient to feel the very same way."


"During the interview, you could tell that what she was saying was coming from the heart. It was based on her own personal opinion and not from a sheet of paper that the police typed for her to say."




"I enjoyed when Mr. Boykins spoke about how he is standing on the shoulders of so many other African-Americans that came before for him and that he is an example for those to come in the future."


"The fact that he was clear on what he does, how he does it, and that he knew what he was talking about."




"I liked how the counselor talked about how she loves her job and said that helping the students out was wonderful, and I was thinking the same thing."


"I enjoyed the information he gave about what types of classes I am going to have to take in college to be ready for my career. He gave me an idea of what I am going to need and know for my career."




"I enjoyed that they didn't just say the good things about the job. They also shared the bad. It's good when people say that because I would rather hear the truth then some made up story to make you want to go into the job."


"I love everything about cooking, and this video taught me how it would be to cook in a real kitchen. He also taught how schooling is important to my chosen field and how schooling helps you solve the chemistry problems in food. "




"I enjoyed when they told me that sometimes we get to choose where we want to go and that if I wanted to get a job like this, I would have to focus mainly on biology, algebra, science, and chemistry."


"That it goes along with what I like to do at home and in art. And in my free time I like to draw floor plans of house and create my own houses. And then I use Google Sketchup to do the houses and look at the 3-D way of the house."

"She told me what I am to expect on the job and gave me useful information that I would be able to use in college if I were to major in this particular field."

"I got to understand more of what a reporter/journalist has to do and go through, even if it is hard. I love to write and that's what I want to pursue for my career."




"How interesting he made his job look . Most people would think it's boring, but making the patients happy, and keeping them in good hands is great! I love helping others in any way possible! Seeing them happy is the greatest feeling ever!"


"Learning that no class in particular is important for your career while in high school. You just have to take in all the knowledge you can to become successful in anything you do."

"I ENJOYED EVERYTHING BECAUSE MY THING TO DO IN LIFE IS TO HELP PEOPLE. I ALSO ENJOYED IT BECAUSE MY CAREER CLUSTER IS TO BE IN MEDICINE MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND CHANGE IN PEOPLE'S LIFE TODAY!"




"I enjoyed the fact that there was a real person that actually does that job there talking about their personal experience instead of facts and figures about the job."


"I enjoyed being able to see exactly what an RN does, it was kind of hands on and helpful, especially since being a nurse is one of the careers I would consider."




"I enjoyed the tips that were given. It gives me an outlook on this career and helps me to focus on my priorities."


"I enjoyed the way Mr. Brown shared his passion for his job. He gave tips on how to be successful in a teaching career, which really caught my attention."




"That education was a huge part of (being a musician) and that you have to actually understand that business is associated with music. I enjoyed the way he broke down what he had done and what it took to become a successful musician."


" I like it because it revolved around music and performing. I thought that the videos gave great information. You learn something new everyday and I learned that you will always need a back up plan if the other one doesn't workout. I enjoyed it a lot!"
