1. My top cluster was manufacturing and a job I would like to investigate is a Fashion Designer. My second cluster was marketing and a job I would like to investigate is being an Agent.

2. My top cluster of interest is marketing and the high school activities that would best prepare me incline marketing management, english and creative writing, accounting and business law, market research, probability statistics, public speaking, and capstone experience.

3. My top three interest areas are Artistic, Investigative, and Enterprising. My top interests fit me because I am very artistic in the sense that I love to sing, I also enjoy drawing and acting. Investigative fits me because I am always questioning things and finding answers for certain situations that interest me.

4. I was identified as a thinker which means that I am a conceptual, analytical, and logical thinker. I detest routine and prefer to work alone on projects. I think this description fits me well because I have alway liked working alone and I tend to overthink a lot of things that go on in my life.

5. I don’t think that the career fields that were picked for me are a good fit for me. I have always been interested in the medical field but also the study of the mind. This is why I think that a phycologist or psychiatrist would fit me and my personality best.

1. My top cluster was the Health Science cluster. A job that really interests me in that cluster is a Pediatrician. My next top cluster was Education and Training and a job to look at going into would be an Early Childhood Educator.

2. My top career cluster was Health Science and to help prepare me, I should become involved in Science Clubs, Scrubs Camp, or HOSA. I could also take classes like Biology, Chemistry, and Anatomy.

3. My top three interest areas are Conventional, Artistic, and Social. My top interests fit me because I want a job where I can be around people and have fun, but also be able to be logical in what I do.

4. The personality quiz says that I am a planner. This fits me well because it means that I am organized, dependable, follow instructions well and I like to get my work done before doing fun things. I believe that all of this is true about me.

5. I think that the Health Science or Education and Training areas of work are a good match for me. Both of those areas would allow me to work with children like I want to, either being a pediatrician or a teacher for pre-school or kindergarten. Either area would also let me be able to be organized and logical, but I would still get to have fun and enjoy my job.

1. The career cluster that I’m best suited towards is Finance. One job in this field that interests me is an Accountant. My second career cluster was Information Technology and the job I’d like to look more into is the area of Information Support and Services.

2. My top career cluster of interest is Finance and the high school courses I should take to best prepare me for this include Economics, Accounting, Computer Applications, Intro to Financial Services, Banking Services, Capstone Experience and International Business and Marketing.

3. My top three interest areas are Investigative, Conventional and Enterprising. These fit me because I’m interested in science and logic, I’m detailed oriented, and I like to work through problems step-by-step.

4. According to the personality quiz, I’m a planner. I would like to think that this fits me well because I follow instructions and procedures, I like to organize and manage situations and materials, and I believe that work comes before play.

5. I think that that Finance would be a very appropriate career cluster for me. I’ve learned that I’m a numbers person that likes to keep things tidy, which is a necessity for any job in this field. Another thing that leads me to believe that I would fit perfectly into the financial career cluster, is that many of the classes that are suggested for this field I’d already previously completed or expressed some interest in taking.

1. My top cluster was Human Services and a job I’d like to investigate is a Childcare Worker. My 2nd cluster was Transportation, Distribution, & Logistics and a job I’d like to investigate is a Flight Attendant.

2. My top cluster of interest was Human Services and the high school activities that would best prepare me include FCCLA, Peer Mediator, Mentor, and Tutor.

3. My top three interest areas are Social, Enterprising, and Artistic. My top interests fit me well because I for sure want to work with people, I believe I’ll have no trouble to be ambitious in the career that I choose, and I don’t want a boring job.

4. I was identified as a helper, which means that I have a strong need to make a difference in the lives of other people. I think this description fits me well because I have always cared a lot about other people throughout my life. I would not be surprised if I go into a career that deals with caring for others.

5. I believe that many of my results from these activities fell in line with what I want to do. I’d like to be a teacher, daycare provider, or something along those lines if all goes as planned. The fact that I’m a helper really helps me have confidence in myself, and makes me believe I could succeed in one of these fields.

1. My top cluster was Education and Training and a job I would like to investigate is a elementary school teacher. My 2nd cluster was Business Management and Administration and a job I would like to further look into is human resource assistant.

2. My top cluster of interest is Education and Training and the high school activities that would best prepare me include athletics, 4-H, FCCLA, student council, and being a tutor.

3.My top three interest areas include social, investigative and artistic. My top interests fit me because I enjoy talking with people and I also like to know why something happened. The social interest area shows that I do like to communicate. The artistic interest area means that I like to come up with new and fun ways to express what I mean.

4. I was identified as a planner, which means that I like to be organized and establish a schedule which would allow me to be dependable. I think this description fits me well because I logically plan out when I am going to do certain things to verify that it will get done. I also like to be organized in order to not lose anything and keep everything neat.

5. I feel that becoming a teacher is a very real possibility for me because these activities have shown me that I have the skills needed to be a teacher. All the activities provided details about the skills and job requirements and I feel I have the drive and capability to continue into this field.

1. My top cluster was STEM and a job I'd like to learn about from it would be genetic engineering. My second cluster was actually tied with two other clusters but the one that I preferred would probably be the Law, Public Safety, Corrections and Security cluster, a job I would be interested from this cluster would be something like a the crime scene analysis team.
2. My top cluster is again STEM and the high school activities that would best prepare me for STEM include Math Counts, Project Lead The Way, Science Fair, and Robotics.
3. My top three interest areas are Investigative, Artistic, Realistic. My top interest fits me because it pertains to science and learning things, and thats what really interests me and it fits the kind of job I want.
4. I was Identified as a Thinker, which means that I'm an independent worker, I dislike routine, I have an insatiable thirst for understanding and information, and that for me the challenge is in the ideas not the details or implementation of my creations. I would only really agree with about half of this if not less, I am somewhat of an independent worker but I also like working with others and usually have no dislike towards doing so, I also NEED routine, it's very hard for me to like actually properly function with out a preset routine, and lastly while I do love to learn I would not call my desire to learn insatiable, I simply love learning and discovering things and plan to continue learning and discovering things in my future job.
5. I am looking towards becoming a genetic engineer and working on things like creating GMOs and genetics within animals. I think that after looking at all of this information about myself that I still think that this job would fit me pretty well. This is because it will allow me to work both with a team or independently, continue to learn and develop and discover new things as I work, it will also mean that I won't have to deal with people which is a plus for me and the reason I don't want to be a regular doctor, it also will make it so for the most part I won't have to be around so much blood or directing things as I am not very particular to these things, I don't really have any qualms with them but overall I just don't really enjoy them.

1. My top cluster was Health Science and a job I’d like to investigate is Biomedical Engineering. My second cluster was Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics and I am interested in learning more about Civil Engineering too.

2. My top career cluster of interest is Health Science and the activities I should be participating in high school to best prepare myself include Medical Terminology, Biology, Chemistry, Pharmacology, Health and Wellness, Human Body Systems, and Capstone Experience.

3. My top three interest areas are investigate, social, and artistic. My top interests represent who I am because I am always curious to see how things work the way they do. Also, I like talking to people about all aspects of their life. Lastly, I wouldn’t consider myself the typical artist, but I do like to be creative and make projects for school. I also really enjoy putting my creative juices into playing sports and using creativity in that aspect.

4. I was identified as a helper, which means that I have no problem giving assistance to people if needed. Also, I am willing to put in extra time to help benefit not just myself, but others. I think this description describes me because I help my peers with their homework or answer any questions they may have. Plus, I try to always make sure that when I am playing soccer that I am being helpful to the team, not hurtful.

5. I think that the job shadow field I am considering seems like a fit for me because Biomedical Engineering is a mixture of Health Sciences and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Although, I am slightly surprised because I have always thought that I was going to pursue a job as a teacher. Also, I have started being slightly interesting in different careers like criminal justice because of my investigative area, or being a pilot because I am a tactile learner. I’m just a little confused now because all of these fields really interest and bring totally different aspects to the table. But, I am willing to investigate and put time into the job shadowing process to see how I feel about all of them.

1. My top career cluster was Art, AV Tech and Communications and I would like to look into jobs such as graphic design, editing and producing. My second career cluster was government and public administration and jobs I’d like to investigate are legislation and political science.

2. My top career cluster is Arts, Audio/Visual technology and communications. Activities that are suggested at I am already in are the musicals, speech, and drama. I have done Interactive media and entrepreneurship in the past which have helped with website design. It also suggests I be involved in yearbook, photography and skills USA.

3. My top three interest ares from the survey were artistic, investigative and enterprising. I’ve always been very artistic and creative all throughout my life. I usually want to discover new things and figure out how things work and why they work the way they do. I’ve been found to be intelligent and resourceful when it comes to school and helping others.

4. The personality test describes me as a helper, which I see to be pretty accurate. I’ve been told by my peers and teachers that I’m very good at helping others and explaining problems to them. I do enjoy helping others and it helps me to practice and remember what I have also learned. I also find to be a very compassionate person. I enjoy helping my friends through problems, make a difference and inspire my younger friends.

5. I think the Arts, Audio/Visual Technology and Communications is a good match for me. I do have many of the skills and interests in many of the jobs that this field holds. I would like something that would challenge me and use the skills that I enjoy portraying. Although I do like this option, I find that some Governmental and Public administration aspects also draw me in. Overall, this career field seems to be a fairly good match and hopefully it contains a career I will thoroughly enjoy.

Using the 16 Career Clusters Activity (the stapled activity in your folder), 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 two Career Clusters were Arts and Audio/Visual Technology Communications and Education and Training. For Arts and Audio/Visual Technology Communications I would consider a professional actress. For Education and Training I would consider a teacher.

2. 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 Career Cluster is Education and Training for which getting involved in get involved in tutoring, athletics, 4-H, FCCLA, and student council.

3. 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 fit me because…

My top three interest areas came out as artistic, social, and investigative. These interests fit me because I love the arts! I quite enjoy music, theater, writing, reading, poetry, films, et cetera. While I am shy, social fit because I really do have a need to be around people during the day. Finally, investigative fit my personality because I love to learn new things and see how/why they work.

4. 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 got the personality match of a helper. The description is most fitting of myself because that is what I truly love doing, and is one of the biggest reasons that I desire to go into education. I want to inspire others, make connections, and leave a legacy bigger than myself through service to others.

5. 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 firmly believe that the career and job shadow that I am considering is a great fit for me. One, the career test told me, “Born to be a Teacher.” Also, the Education and Training Career Cluster had a 17/17 for the Career Clusters packet. As far as the interest survey goes, I esteem that teachers need to be somewhat artistic because they have to have a creative spark for lesson planning. Also, people learn better with colors, visuals, et cetera. Teaching clearly requires social skills, as one deals with parents, children, and colleagues through out the day. Finally, teachers must be willing to investigate. They need to be willing to be proven wrong, find answers, and most importantly diagnose and solve problems. These cannot be done without a wee bit of investigation. Thus, I believe teaching will be good fit for me.

1. My top career cluster is Education and Training. A job I would like to look into is a math professor. My second career cluster is Business Management and Administration. A job I would like to look into is an administrative services manager.

2. My top career cluster is Education and Training. I should participate in athletics, 4-H, FCCLA, student council, and tutoring in order to prepare me for this career.

3. My top three interests are conventional, enterprising, and social. My top interest, conventional, fits me because I want to be a professor and generally professors have to be conventional in order to teach the material in a set way.

4. I was identified as a thinker, which means that I think conceptually, analytically, and logically. I am independent, detest routine, and often gravitate towards leadership roles. I think this description fits me well because I do enjoy leadership (knowledge is power), I am very independent (maybe too much for my own good), and I analyze everything.

5. I am considering being a mathematics professor at a 4-year university. My top career cluster was Education & Training in every test. I think that this profession seems to be fit, based on what I have learned about myself. This is because I love to tutor kids (fun fact: I tutored kids online all summer. Some were as far away as Belfast and Italy!) and math is my favorite subject. I love to help people as much as possible and it is heartwarming knowing that I can increase others’ education.

1. My top career cluster was Health Science and one of the jobs that I would like to investigate is is working in the Therapeutic Services branch. My second cluster had a three way tie but I chose Human Services. So the job I would like to investigate would be either a teacher or a general nurse.

2. My top cluster of interest is Health Science. The type of activities that would be best for me to do or be involved with are: Skills USA, PLTW, science clubs, scrubs camp, and even HOSA.

3. My top three interest ares were Social, Realistic, and Conventional. My interest with being social fits me because I am always willing to help others and I love to work and meet new people. I also am always there when you need me and am willing to lend a hand.

4. I was identified as a helper, which means that I have a strong need to make a difference with other peoples lives and make heart felt connections with others. I think this description fits me because I have always been able to make new friends and work with people that I don't know. I like to help others and make others feel good about themselves.

5. I think that the career field that I am considering would be a good math for me. I think that because I love to treat others and make their lives a little better everyday. I have a big heart and I love making others laugh and have a better day.

1. My top career cluster was Education and Training. A job I’d like to investigate in this cluster is teaching. My second career cluster was Business Management and Administration. I don’t think I will like any jobs in this cluster.

2. My top cluster of interest is Education and Training. The high school activities that would prepare me include: athletics, 4-H, FCCLA, student council, and tutoring.

3. My top three interest areas are social, investigative, and artistic. These three things could say many things about. They fit me because I’d like to think that I am a social person who is very curious about things.

4. This quiz identified me as a helper. This means that I have great people skills and know how to work well with others. I think this is fitting because I like to help my friends out if they are feeling down about something.

5. I think that being a teacher could be a match but at the same time it also might not be. I think this because I like helping my friends. I’m very social when I am around them but I do not like stepping out of my comfort zone.

2. My top Career Cluster is Finance. The SDMyLife booklet suggested that I should focus my studies on the following areas: Economics and Accounting, Business Law, Computer Applications, International Business and Marketing, Intro to Financial Services, Banking Services, and Capstone Experience.

3. My top three interests areas are Conventional, Investigate, and Social. My top interest fits me because I am a very organized person that enjoys when everything is in the correct place where it should be.

4. I was identified as a Helper, which means my communication style creates peace and harmony in the workplace. As a helper personality, I am gifted with tremendous people skills. I think this description fits me well in some ways but not so much in others. I am not the best at talking to other people, but I do enjoy lifting people up and helping them as much as I can. I hate when my friends or family members are upset, and I’m always doing whatever I can to help them and see them smile again.

5. I do think that my chosen field of Finance/Business Management and Administration fits me very well. I enjoy working with numbers, problem solving, and helping others. Overall, I like the choice I’ve made and I hope to be able to find a career I’ll love within one of these fields.
