1. My top career cluster is health science and a job that I would like to research is a pharmacist. My second career cluster is Mathematics and Engineering and a job that I would like to investigate is BioTech Engineer. The high school activities I should get involved in are Skills USA, PLTW, Science Clubs, Scrubs Camp, and HOSA.

2. The top three interest areas that I found are conventional, investigative, and social. My interest area fits me because I am very detailed oriented, and I like to oversee people to make sure they are not messing anything up because I am a perfectionist.

3. I was given the title of planner, which means that I like making a schedule and staying up to date on all of my work. This fits me because I am never found without a plan.

4. My top field, health science, fits me and my interests very well. I enjoy making people feel better and I also like to see the results before and after the problems they may have.

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_______ and a job I'd like to investigate is ______. My 2nd cluster....).

My top cluster was Arts, A/V Technology, and Communications and a job I’d like to investigate is a musician. Probably more teaching music than actually being a musician. My second cluster was Human Services and a job I’d like to investigate is child care.

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….)

MY top cluster of interest is Arts, A/V Technology, and Communications. The high school activities that would prepare me include web site design, musicals, yearbook staff, skills usa, debate, speech team, or drama club, and photography.

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…

Mt top three interest areas are artistic, realistic, and social. My top interest fits me because I’m very musical and I pay close attention to detail in my work.

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…)

I was identified as a helper, which means that I’m gifted with tremendous people skills. I think this fits me well because I love to make others feel good about who they are and inspire them to make changes in their lives so they can reach their full potential.

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!

A lot of my quiz results showed that I’m a helper and I enjoy being around people. Also that I learn by hearing. I’m not a huge fan of working with computer technology and web design but that’s what my top cluster is. My personality quiz showed that a teacher would be an ideal career for me, and that’s what I want to be. I am interested in music so I can see how I got that cluster, but the suggested jobs weren’t anything I’m interested in.

 1. My top career cluster was science, technology, Engineering, and mathematics. One job in that category that I interests me is a biotechnologist. My second career cluster was health science. Becoming a lab worker sounds like an interesting job to investigate to me.
1A. My top career cluster is science, technology, engineering and math and the high school activities that are recommended for that cluster are math counts, robotics, project lead the way, and science fair.
2. My top three interest areas are investigative, conventional, realistic. These seem to fit me because I consider myself a very curious person. I love to explore the world of science and understand why things are the way they are. I am also a very organized person and insist on some form of a routine. I am realistic because I love to be active and outside in my free time. I am not a couch potato in the least.
3. I was identified as a thinker, which means that I am a creative problem solver and that knowledge is what drives me. I think that this fits me really well because I love to understand how the world works and what processes make what happen. Knowledge is very important to me and I love learning more everyday.
4. I think that working in a lab is something that I would really love to do. I have Mr. Peterson as my anatomy teacher and what he does in the summers over at the Sanford Research Center sounds really interesting and fun to me. Also, I loved biology class last year and this year I think I am really going to enjoy anatomy and the biomedical class I am taking at the CTE Academy. Working with tiny specimens and exact measurements sounds like something I would be good at. I really hope I can get an opportunity to job shadow in a lab somewhere.

1.My top cluster was Health Science and a job I’d like to investigate is Ultrasound Technician. My 2nd cluster was Human Services and a job I’d like to investigate is Psychologist.
1A. My 2nd cluster of interest is Human Services and the high school activities that would best prepare me include FCCLA, Peer Mediator, Mentor, and Tutor.
2. My top three interest areas are Investigative, Social, and Conventional. My top interests fit me because I like to compare and discus what we are doing with other people, which makes me social. I like to figure out how things are done and how people are feeling, which makes me investigative. I am conventional because I need everything organized and have a list for everything so that I can cross it off and feel like I am getting things done.
3. I was identified as a planner, which means that I am dependable and love to organize. I think this description fits me well because I do organize everything, and people do look to me for help while know that they can trust me.
4. I was considering being an Animal Scientist but now that I have done all of these surveys I think that I should change it to something else. I believe this because with my back issues I wouldn’t be able to do everything required. I also think that I would be more useful to others being a Psychologist or an Ultrasound Technician. I believe this because I have found out that I like to help people and to work more indoors.
