Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics

When thinking about Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics it makes me think of how important this career cluster is to our economy. In what way do you think the cluster contributes to/effects our nation's economy? Please describe your two careers in this cluster first. How do you think each of your two careers in this cluster contribute to/effect our nation's economy? How does this cluster contribute to/effect the other clusters you have completed research in? This is important to our nation's economy because it helps helps things such as getting people that are injured to the hospital, help with automotive difficulties, and also to help organize. This is a major part in the economy because if people weren't able to help others and help organize this world would be a complete DISASTER. In this cluster I chose Ambulance Drivers and Attendants, Except Emergency Medical Technicians and Rail Car Repairers. These jobs are efficient to our economy because they both allow us to fix things that help distribute things. This cluster effects the other clusters I have chosen because they also help with the things they do.

Governemnt Connections

              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.

                In the government and public administration cluster, I chose the transportation managers and the general and operations manager. I chose the transportation manager because this job requires to help people and lead them in a path that will get them where they need to be. Also, I chose general and operations managers because in this job, they need to plan and organize for a private sector. These two jobs relate to my chosen job as a veterinarian because they have to put forth time and effort to do the job correctly and precisely.

Ag

              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?
             First of all, the final career I chose was a Veterinarian, and the two Ag, Food, and Natural Resources careers I chose were Aqua cultural managers and Graphic designers. The aqua cultural managers relate to the veterinarian because they are both something that you have to put time, effort, and care. The second job, Graphic Designer relates to my chosen job in my community because you need someone to put time and effort into your dog, cat, or what ever animal you have; also put time and effort into your clothing if you go to a clothing store.

Similarities


                 This assignment was to take the final career that a student chose and basically compare it to on of the careers that they chose on the Business, Management, and Administration. The two careers seem to be completely opposite like nothing would ever compare to them, but they actually do! My final career was a Veterinarian and my (BMA) Business, Management, and Administration career was a Postal Service Mail Carrier. These jobs were similar in the fact that they both have to have dedication, commitment, and thought into what they are doing. If the two jobs that I described didn't have these characteristics the job wouldn't be personal, thoughtful, and caring. The person who is going to have this job needs to be caring and thoughtful at the most.

Construction & Architecture

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! The two careers in Architecture and Construction are both similar in interests, being exposed to things the person usually isn't, and work styles. In the interests, the person has to be conventional, they have to be exposed, and in the work style they both have to be cooperative. Neither of these job careers really have anything to do with my job career, but they both do help people and things around them.

Comparisons

               Now that you have completed some research on your chosen career, how does it measure up to a career in Human Services? Please make a note of the two careers by name and write about what they have in common. Use your fact sheets to compare the two. After comparing the two careers, decide and write about what those similarities mean to you. Could you work in Human Services? Does it confirm your chosen career and academy or does it make you want to change it?



                 The final job that I chose from Career Cruising is to be Veterinarian. This measures up to Human Services because I would be treating an animal that needs care. This job relates to human services because it is taking care of something that needs to be done, but the person who needs something done is unable to do that task. A job that I chose was a nanny. This helps the parents with teaching discipline and how to act to their children's responses to everyday situations.  Another job that I chose was to be a Childcare Worker. This job is helping a child in any aspect that is needing attention. I could work in human services because I have the ability to help people and do it a timely manner. This does confirm that my chosen career and academy is the one I want.

Why Is It Important?

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.

It is important for you to understand personalities in a workplace because if you know them you could potentially help them without even knowing so. Also, it could help you with your overall knowledge of the person and help you be a better influence to that person.

True Colors

What is True Colors? What color do you predict you will be? What makes you that color?


                True Colors is four different colors: blue, gold, green, and orange. The blue color is the color that the person is very emotional and they care about what they are doing. The gold color is the color that the person is responsible, organized, and is very dependable.  The color green is the people who care about the environment, the world, and nature. The color orange is the color that the people are very outgoing, crazy, spontaneous, and fun. I predicted that I would be the color orange. I am this color because I am very outgoing, fun, and spontaneous.
