My top cluster was Health Science and a job I would like to investigate would be a registered nurse because I go go further into other parts of the medical field from there. My second career cluster is Human Services. I don't know what I would do in that field though because I have never thought about it.
My top career cluster is Health Science. In high school I should be talking biology, chemistry, Medical Terminology, and Human Body Systems. I should also be in scrubs camp, PLTW, skills USA, science clubs, and hosa.
My top three interest areas were enterprising, social and conventional. I think fits me because I like to be social and I want to work somewhere with a social environment.
I got a helper and I think this fits me well because I like to help people when they are not doing so well or if something is bothering them. I like to do things for people if they need help with activities or if they are struggling with something.
I think this fits me because I want to go into the medical field. I could be a good helper and my top cluster is Health Science.

  My top job cluster was Law and Public safety, corrections and security. The job I would like to investigate is an attorney. My second cluster was Education and Training. The job that I would like to investigate is a coach.
 My top cluster is Law, public safety, corrections and security and the high school activities that would best prepare me include English, Human Development, American Government, Athletics, and Debate Team.
 My top three were Enterprising, Realistic, and Investigative. My top interest explains me because I like to influence and persuade others.
 I was identified as a thinker, which means that I like to think things through before acting. I think this description fits me well because I like to thinks of the consequences to actions
 I am thinking of job shadowing a law enforcement career because it seems to fit with my personality test. I think I will shadow a lawyer because I am an enterpriser and that fits with a lawyer.

Now synthesize all of your results. Kristy Jackson will also have access to this information to assist her in your placements. Answer the following questions IN COMPLETE SENTENCES! Number your responses 1-4.

1. Using the 16 Career Clusters Activity, identify your top 2 Career Clusters and include a job from each of those clusters that you may consider. (i.e. My top cluster was__engineer_____ and a job I'd like to investigate is __EMT____. My 2nd cluster....).

1A. Turn to your SDMyLIfe booklet. On pp. 11-41, there are two pages dedicated to EACH career cluster. Find your top cluster (or 2nd highest, you decide.) Read the profile that goes along with your top cluster. These are featured South Dakota employees. To answer this question, again write what is your top cluster and according to the booklet, what are the high school activities you should get involved in to prepare you for this career. (i.e. My top cluster of interest is...... and the high school activities that would best prepare me include….) Paramedic, classes that are required are american government, english, health and physical fitness, human development, world language and intro to emergency medical service. Civil engineer classes mechatronics/robotics, energy/power, mathematics, engineering design and development, and chemistry.

2. Using the SD Interest Survey (the single 2-sided worksheet), identify your top 3 Interest Areas. Then in a sentence briefly explain what your top interest area says about YOU. (Do both parts of this question!) i.e. My top three....My top interests fits me because…Artistic, realistic, conventional

3. Using your Personality Quiz screenshot and the first 3 short paragraphs of your results, in 2 sentences identify your personality type and then explain why this type FITS YOU!
(i.e. I was identified as a planner, which means that......I think this description fits me well because…) the personality quiz said I'm a planner. I think this fits me best because before i do anything i like to plan it. I enjoy planning the things I'm about to do that night or what I'm going to do the next night.

4. Finally, after working your way through ALL of these activities, do you think the job shadow field or career field you are considering seems to be a fit or a match based on what you have learned about yourself. WHY or WHY NOT? (Be sure to mention what field you are considering!) Answer in at least two sentences!
  I do not think it is correct i would like a job that is more hands on and lets me interact with people. I would like a job that lets me get out and see the world.

My top two career clusters are architecture and construction, and I would consider drafting in this field. In science, technology, engineering, and mathematics i would consider civil engineering.

The cluster I'm most interested in is science, technology, engineering, and math. Within this cluster I'm really curious about engineering. The classes that i should focus on are mechatronics/robots, energy/power, mathematics, Engineering design & development, chemistry, and capstone experience.

My top three interest areas include investigative, artistic, and realistic. These clusters show that I am interested in science and logic. I’m also artistic and can handle change. I also like to work with objects physically.

I’m overall a thinker. I think I identify well with this because i do generally think about the decisions i make. The awesome part of this is that I think very carefully, but the downfall is that i sometimes overthink things.

I’d love to see into either the architecture careers or the engineering careers, and I do think this is a good fit. I’ve learned that i’m a math and science based person as well thinking a lot. I feel that the qualities could be helpful in engineering or architecture.

1. My top cluster was Arts, a/v technology. My second cluster was Business management. My third cluster was Finance. I wouldn't like to investigate any jobs in these clusters. I would prefer to investigate a job in Health science. A job in this cluster i would like to investigate is ultrasound technician and nuclear medicine technologist.

2. According to my top cluster of Arts. a/v technology. I should go involved in website design, musicals, yearbook staff, skills us, debate, photography. The actual cluster i am interested in says i should get involved with Skills USA, PLTW, Science Clubs, Scrubs camps, HOSA.

3. My top three interest from the SD interest survey are artistic, enterprising, and investigation. i feel this say about me that I am creative and curious.

4. My personality quiz i got a 12 in doer. 10 in planner. 8 in helper. 6 in thinker.

This fits me because i find it hard to learn if a teacher is in front of the room lecturing. If they just give me a powerpoint to read, then later in class say “you should know this”, I wont learn anything.

If the teacher makes the class fun and engaging i will learn a lot more. I will want to go to that class. I do like to stay semi-organized so my day runs a lot smoother.

5. After all these quizzes i do feel that the medical field is the right job shade to consider. I have always been interested in the medical field. I am interested in maybe doing a job shadow in ultrasound technician and nuclear medicine technologist. I don't feel that what the results said were accurate. i have never been interested in the stuff they told me i should do.
