Ag is a very big part of our nation today. Our country depends on it. My two careers for the Ag, Food, and Natural Resources cluster are an Animal Trainer and a Chem tech. An animal trainer only relates to my life because I have two dogs to take care of. An animal trainer relates to my community because a lot of people have animals of their own. My other career is a Chemical tech. A chem tech doesn't really relate to my every day life. My junior year I will be taking chemistry, which I will learn what a chem tech does. A chem tech is not an ideal job you will find in Paris. In bigger cities you will find these jobs.

Architecture and Construction

Students have just finished researching the Architecture and Construction career cluster. I'm curious to know how the two careers they looked at are similar and how they are different. I'm also interested to know if either of those two careers relate in any way to their chosen career. It should be interesting to read their posts! My two careers for Architecture and Construction are Interior Designer and a Glazier. An interior designer plan, design, and furnish interiors of residential, commercial, or industrial buildings. Tools used in this job are scales, scanners, triangles, and tape measures. The education required is a Bachelor's degree. The US wages is $47,600 yearly. My second career is a glazier. A glazier installs glass in windows, skylights, store fronts, and display cases such as building fronts, interior walls, ceilings, and tabletops. Tools used in this career are glass cutters, levels, power sanders, and power saws. Education required for this job is a high school diploma or equivalent. The US waged is $37,610 yearly.

Oncology vs. Funeral attendants

My chosen career from careercrusing.com is oncology. Oncology includes many abilities that are found in Human Services. A career in Human services, such as funeral attendants, work distantly related to oncologists. Both of the jobs require working with people, but funeral attendants work with deceased people. Oncologists specilize in diagnosing and treating cancer patients. Funeral attendants perform variety of tasks during funerals. Both of the jobs require the ability to have a concern for others, to make decisions, speech recongnition, written expression, judgement, and active listening. Oncologist make more money, but you have to go to school for more years. I could probably work in Human Services because I like to work with and around people. Getting information on Human Services doesn't make me want to change my chosen career. I like what I have chosen, but I will probably change. For a while I wanted to be a cosmetologist, which is in Human Services. After recent debate, I have realized that I will be better in the medical field because I like making people feel better.
