Asking Questions to Prosecutors. Please answer all of them, thank you.

Prosecutors: Hello! My name is Jaydon and I am a current high school student. I'm conducting an interview with any professional in the Medical and Legal field for a Foundations in Health Science Class project about careers! I have created a total of 13 questions. Comment on this post, answering all 13 questions to be a part of my assignment. This set is to be designed for Prosecutors to answer. 1. Why was this the profession you choose? 2. How many years of college did you need to go through? 3. What jobs did you work before you landed your present professional job? 4. How can I decide if I should earn a PhD in this field? 5. Were you in a college program? If so what kinds? 7. Did you shadow another professional in the field? 8. Did you join any school clubs related to your current profession? 9. Was there a particular subject you struggled with during your school years? 10. What skill sets did you learn or gain while pursuing your career? 11. Can you outright refuse to be the Prosecutor for a court case if you have a reason as to why? 12. Does your job end up interrupting your vacation times and weekends? 13. Is the job dangerous or able to get you hurt?

I know you can go to law school with any degree, but I'm debating between these two fields of study I'm interested in. #Fall22

Are internships a good thing to do while in high school and in college ?

My mom has some friends in the legal field and they've offered me the opportunity to intern with them so I can get "a feel" for the practice but I don't want to pick up something I might not want to do. #experiencelaw #legalintern #legal-studies #legal-services #women-in-law

In what ways is a career in forensic accounting different and more or less rewarding than careers in other areas of accounting or business?

I am considering forensic accounting as a career and understand that it will require unique preparation besides majoring in accounting. I am trying to determine if I should add this additional preparation (additional coursework) to my course load while I am an undergraduate in case I want to go in the forensic accounting direction. Understanding how a career in forensic accounting is different in its rewards would help me decide. #accounting #criminal-justice #criminology #law-school #pre-law #legal-studies #forensic-accounting

I want to be a lawyer ...but probably in business so now IAM taking history and economics as I think it suits my goal of being a business lawyer one day.. Generally I wana be a lawyer so am I currently doing the right thing??

IAM a secondary student studying my last year in college and will be looking forward for a scholarship next year IAM only asking this question because I don't know if IAM making the right choices of taking economics and history as my major subjects at school so when I go to university I will know what IAM doing...I mean I don't want to end up being stuck in making any further choices of courses I should've taken or regret having the two subjects as my major...I really wanted to be a lawyer but right know am just not clear about what subjects I should take in preparing for uni or in other words for being a lawyer of course .. #business #law #english #politics #legal-studies #constitution
