Job Shadowing
Information Management Officer
Mrs. Nicole Harris

In my quest to find a professional to job shadow I could not come up with anyone better than my supervisor Donnie Pugh. He is the Information Management Officer (IMO) for the U.S. Army Forces Command G3/5/7 directorate. After close observation over the past month I discovered just how much education, training and basic knowledge is required to fill such a position. An IMO should be able to keep the directorate informed of all major developments concerning scheduled computer outages and followed up on all non-scheduled outages with Forces Command G6 directorate to ascertain downtime for the directorate. They replace equipment that has been out of warranty identified under the life cycle management program and use several database tools to help manage computer assets, space, and personnel computer needs throughout the directorate using a schematic displaying specifically by division/section, where computer assets, space, and personnel are located. IMO’s develop and put into practice a policy of maintaining (constantly updated/upgraded) several laptop computers in the IMO office and issue to users on a temporary basis, rather than a permanent basis whereas these laptops are idle for 95% of the time. This saves in return saves on the number of laptop computers that need to be purchased and the amount of time that it takes to update or rejoin to the Forces Command domain after being off the network for over 30 days. They should be develop a local file backup plan for users on the executive team whereas essential files (personal mail folders, desktop files, favorites, etc.) that are not being backed up on network drives, are backed up to an alternate site. An IMO should also be able to supervise a team of two Information Technology Specialist and one Support Services Specialist. They must able to give guidance, direction, and training on how to configure

    I selected to job shadow my mom actually because I couldn't find anyone to shadow in the career that I wanted, so my only other choice was to do my mom. I wasn't really too interested in doing that job at first, but that's what I needed to do. I spent my day watching and helping my mom checking out stock systems and how it works. I was also able to use the office equipment. I wore nice black pants with a nice sweater. We left the building for lunch, and went somewhere else to eat, like my mom does…

    I was lucky enough to go spend my job shadowing experience with my old fourth grade teacher, Mr. Quigley, which was a cool experience to see how things has changed in his classroom over the years and how some things and ideas are the same throughout his classroom. He also introduced me to other grade level teachers and encouraged me to spend time with them too. I got a lot of hands on experience and thought it was very helpful that I had the chance to spend time in different classrooms of different…

    but also because of the sight of sick people without hospital beds and enough doctors. Each stay at the hospital left me wondering," What extraordinary skill do I need to provide good outcomes to Ghana's health care?" Through my experiences of job shadowing and volunteering both in Ghana and in the USA, I have come to realize that being an effective physician is not about doing something extraordinary. Genuine acts of service and sincere care for patients are those that can change a patient’s life…

    For my job shadowing experience, I went to the Henry Ford museum. I wasn’t around any of my fellow students, but there were other people there. The experience was mostly directed towards a group, and explaining a majority of the jobs that you could have there from guest services to security. It wasn’t really personalized or narrowed down, so you got a lot of exposure in just eight hours. The people who were overseeing this mass job shadow, Jim and Tim were pretty lively. It was pretty clear that…
