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.
