Recently I have been asking my students to make connections between their personal lives/chosen careers and those careers they choose to research in class. I ask them to to think about how semi-random research can be tied to meaning for them, personally. This week, among other things, we have researched two careers in the Government and Public Administration cluster. I would like to know why students chose to research the careers they did and how they "connect" to their own chosen career. I chose to research the two careers because they kind of related with my chosen career as a diesel technician. Both the careers and my chosen career involve much organizing, planning and giving orders. Also, the careers need well-educated and hardworkers. Also without these jobs it would be hard for society to smoothly run. Both managers and diesel technicians play a role in our community, and affect how my peers live their daily lives.

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? Well, those careers relate heavily to our community. Both careers help produce crops such as corn, they relate to our nation by making money. And feeding hundreds of thousands of people

I chose a shamppoer and a mortician in the human services cluster. The two jobs share some similarities. The similarites include the interists and job training. Some other similarites are the knowledge needed to perform the jobs. As odd as it seems they both must speak english and be good in customer and personal sales.

Here are some reasons why we might have done a venn diagram career so different from our chosen career. The first reason includes the fact that all jobs have some similarities. Another reason is that it will help us understand the different characteristics we might need to successfully enter the working world.

The two careers in the architecture and sonstruction cluster I chose were fence erector and rigger. These two jobs have some similarities such as;they use some of the same tools, the wages are somewhat close, the work values match and the projected growth is identical. These are the similarities of these two jobs.

Well my career as a diesel technician is nothing like human services career cluster as a shampooer. The two have nothing in common. I could not work in human services. I am not much of a people person and I definetly couldn't shampoo someone's hair for a living. It confirms that the dieseld technician is the career and cluster I want to persue. A diesel technician and a shampooer are both hands on but the hands on work is different. As a diesel technician I would be working to fix something and doing something I enjoy, but as a shampooer I'd just be cleaning someones hair and that's it.

Why is it important for you to understand personalities in the workplace? Think of both, knowing your own personality, as well as knowing how to recognize other people's personalities. Well, it is important to understand personalities in the workplace that way you know if you fit the job well or not. For example, if you are someone that needs to be moving around all the time and are a hands on learner you might not want to choose a job in a cubicle. I am an orange so and office job wouldn't work well for me because I have trouble sitting still, lol.
