2. My top cluster of interest is Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources. The high school activities that would prepare me include FFA, Natural Resources, Horticulture/Floriculture, and also 4-H.

3. My top three interests are Realistic,Investigative, and Enterprising. My top interest describes me because I enjoy using my hands in a physical way to accomplish a job.

4. I was identified as a planner because I pay close attention to details and I like to stay organized. I think this fits me well because the description matches up with the way I like to do things in a job type situation.

5. I’m thinking about doing something in the agricultural field. I have a fair amount of background knowledge in this area and I’m also good at doing doing physical work outdoors so I think I could fit in pretty well in this field.

1. 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___business Management ____ and a job I'd like to investigate is Business Management . My 2nd cluster....).


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….) Debate team, 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… That i would be good at managing things.

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 am a persuasive motivator.

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! Yes I do. The jobs that came up i would be interested in.

1. My top two career clusters are social science and health science. The career that interested me the most in social science was a psychiatrist and in health science, a registered nurse.

2. My top cluster is social science which is also called human services. The high school activities that would best prepare me for this cluster would be FCCLA, Peer mediator, mentor, and being a tutor.

3. My top three interest areas are social, conventional, and investigative. My top three interest fit me because I do like to work with people and help them, I also like to write and take time to read. investigative fits me well because I am curious and I like to find the solve or fix problems.

4. I was identified as a helper, which means I like to help people and groups with their problems. I think this description does fit me because I do enjoy helping others.

5. I believe that social science and health science would be a great career cluster to further more research on, and a job shadow just might help. I would either like to be a psychiatrist or a registered nurse. Both of these careers are a match and interest me, so I yet have to decide which one I want to choose.
