So, we’re in the midst of Job Shadow Week here at the U of A. (And yes, you did read that correctly… it isn’t just Reading Week.) Maybe this is the first time you’re hearing about it; or maybe you’ve already signed up, except you’re now on the fence about participating because you realized that you actually wanted to spend the entirety of Reading Week catching up on all the sleep you’ve missed… Regardless, I’m here to tell you why job shadowing is a GIANT step in the right direction!

Although this theory was later disproven, people with type A personalities tend to have traits (anxiety, stress, aggression etc.) that are in themselves risk factors for many illnesses.
Hello Patti, I noticed that you listed Technical Writer as #18 (right next to Funeral Director at 19) in your list of fastest growing professions. I have been a technical writer for more than 10 years and back in September of ’09, it took me 3 months to get a job. Just some trivia to add to your well thought out article.
