Ag.

After researching careers in the Ag, Food, and Natural Resources cluster, you should be making connections between those careers and your day to day life. How does each of the two careers you learned about relate to your life? How does each of those careers relate to our community? How do they relate to, fit in to, or affect our nation in general?

I choose a Vet., and a Vet Assistant as my careers. The Vet relates to my life and our community in the way that animals can get hurt and sick in my community and the vets have to take care of them, but if it is not that bad, the owners can take care of them. Also with the Vet Assistant it relates with my community because they need to consult owners. They can call you and let you know if your animal has died.

BMA Comparison

I think that we had to compare our chosen career and a business, management and administration career so that we could see what jobs are out there. So we could see what jobs have similar characteristics so maybe we would want to change our job. We did this to see what similar jobs we could have.

Architecture and Construction career cluster

Students have just finished researching the Architecture and Construction career cluster. I'm curious to know how the two careers they looked at are similar and how they are different. I'm also interested to know if either of those two careers relate in any way to their chosen career. It should be interesting to read their posts!


My two careers from the Architecture and Construction career cluster is Airline Pilots, Copilots, and Flight Engineers and Civil Engineers. They are similar because they both can engineer. The Civil Engineers are more like constructing things rather than the other career which are more like pilots. They both involve critical thinking and near vision.

Comparisons

Now that you have completed some research on your chosen career (careercruising.com), how does it measure up to a career in Human Services? Please make a note of the two careers by name and write about what they have in common. Use your fact sheets to compare the two. After comparing the two careers, decide and write about what those similarities mean to you. Could you work in Human Services? Does it confirm your chosen career and academy or does it make you want to change it?

My chosen career is a Nurse Practitioner. The careers i chose from the human services is a Childcare Worker and the other is a Marriage and Family Therapist. The similarities between the childcare worker and a nurse practitioner is that they both work with people. The childcare worker works more with children when a nurse practitioner works with all ages of people. I think it would be more fun to work with just children just because I love babies, but I wouldn't enjoy spending my day changing diapers. I would enjoy being a nurse practitioner because you get to help all ages of people all day, without changing diapers. Also why I would enjoy being the nurse practitioner instead of the childcare worker is because its the step right below the doctor and its less schooling and still a very good pay. So, after comparing I confirm my pick of a career as a Nurse Practitioner.
