    JA: Job Shadow

    Today in my 8th grade we were in JA's job shadow. I went to see Musco Lighting and it was just a awesome time. Well for the first half of the day we got a tour of Musco Lighting and it is one big place. Then the second half we watched a worker and helped him to his job. He was the Quality Manager. ( but he Liked Iowa) Well last we went threw a whole slideshow of places were the stadiums are lite by Musco. I noticed Flordia State uses Musco Lighting. I just wonder if any other schools do this job shadow.

    Thanks,

    This is my longest post ever

    Musco is known throughout the world. I watched a night MotoGP race this year and they couldn't stop talking about how good of job Musco did. It was the first ever night MotoGP race.

    Musco is also responsible the lighting systems at about a dozen NASCAR tracks. It's incredible advertising, given the number of ground-level light fixtures at each venue. Every time the cars go by, you see "Musco" after "Musco" after "Musco" after "Musco".

    I interviewed there. They did Daytona and a bunch of other places. They have pictures of many of the places on the walls.

    Yeah, I remember one year watching the Pepsi 400 the broadcasters made very clear that the lights at Daytona would illuminate a 2 lane highway from Daytona to Muscatine - then went on to tell us the significance of that...

    Re: JA: Job Shadow

    I'm glad you enjoyed your job shadowing experience. I think it is important to determine your interests and set goals, even in 8th grade.

    Though it might not be where you ultimately end up, it will pave a path that you can build upon. I'd say you're on the right track.

    You're an 8th grader? Good grief, I guess we never know who we're really talking to on these boards. In any case, you need to hook up with cyismydog.

    Dude, he just said he was an 8th grader, not that he liked boys

    Seriously though, it is a good idea to job shadow anything and everything you might be interested in, even at a young age...good work! (good work to hobbsfan27, not you djkent01)



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    I guess we know the direction your general thoughts flow to. Dude.
