My two careers in the cluster Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics are a Bicycle Repairer and a Flight Attendant. A bicycle repairer effects our ecomonmy big time. Since riding a bike somewhere is better for the earth in many ways than driving a car, bicycle repaires help the country save money to fix pollution problems caused by cars. Flight attendants keep many people comfortable and entertained during flights. If the flight attendants were rude or if they did not exist, people would not like riding in planes and use cars instead. Again, the pollution levels would rise and the country would have to spend more money on the problem. Air planes can hold and transport more people and goods than cars can, also while traveling at a faster speed than cars can. Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics basically carry the country. If we did not people working in these areas, we would not be able to get anywhere, have certain goods and foods, and most likely would not survive. All of the other clusters would not be able to function without transportation because they would not have a way to get to their jobs or the certain materials used to perform the jobs.

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? My two careers I chose from the Ag, Food, and Natural Resources cluster are a Veternarian and a Zoologist. Both of these careers related to my every day life because I love animals and I love taking care of them. The Vet relates to my community because there are probably 4 different vets offices here. They are very common in Paris. A zoologist really does not relate to my community because in Paris, we do not have exotic/big animals you would find in zoos or actual zoos. Both veternarians and zoologists are very beneficial to our community. Without them, animals all around the nation would die and most of the species would go extinct.

We had an assignment where we had to compare our chosen career to our career from the cluster Buisness Management. I think Mr. Boyars had us two completely different careers to see the pros and cons of our chosen career. It actually made me sure that I wanted to be an OBGYN. I have comparied by chosen career to so many other careers and it showed me what careers I really do NOT want to do and what one I want to do.

My two careers from the cluster "Architecture and Construction" are Flight Attendants and Surveyors. Flight Attendants and Surveyors are kind of alike because they both deal with people and ask people questions. Flight Attendants have to have at least a high school diploma, while Surveyors have to have a Bachelors degree. My chosen career is an Obstetrician Gynecologist. The Flight Attendants and Surveyors are in the way alike with an OBGYN because all 3 jobs deal with people.

My chosen career is an Obstetrician Gynecologist. An OBGYN is in the cluster "Human Science." Also, I have a career chosen as an Embalmer in the cluster "Health Services." The two clusters are a lot a like because they both primarly focus on helping people. An OBGYN delivers babies, doctors pregnant women, and helps with disorders of babies that are just born. Embalmers get bodies ready for funerals. They sew the lips together, drain the blood from the bodies, replace it with embalming fluid to keep the bodies preserved, and dress the bodies so they can be put in the casket. Both an OBGYN and an Embalmer deal with humans. On the other hand, they really do not have any more similarities. I personally would choose to be an OBGYN because I love babies and I think that working with dead people all of the time would make me very upset. I think I could work in human services because I find some of the jobs very interesting, but once again, Human Science interests me a lot more. Human Services really confirms my chosen career. It shows me what jobs I really do not want to have and points me toward being an OBGYN a lot more.

It is important to understand others personalities in the workplace because you might not want to say some things in front of different people because they may get offended. Each person has a different personalitly and they may not approve of some of your actions the way others with the same personality as you do.

True Colors is a model for understanding yourself and others based on your personalitly. There are 4 colors that tie to your personaltily and show your "true colors." I predict I will be orange becuase I make decisions quickly and I always like to be on the move. I also take advantage of everything that comes my way!
