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? I choose florist and vet for my careers. The vet relates to my life in the way that I take care of my animals. It fits into our community in the way that a lot of people own animals, and those animals can get hurt and sick. Most of our nation eats meat which, and most people will want those animals that give us meat to be healthy. In the way that a florist relates to my life is that I love flowers, and their meanings. In our community with florists they provide guys who mess up in their relationships a way to get their girlfriend, or wife to forgive them. They also provide flowers for families who had loved ones who died. It fits with our nation in the same way as our community. Men mainly use it as a, "Forgive me I messed up",gift. People also need florists for suggestions for what to use for certain celebrations.

Why did we type up a venn-diagram on our chosen career and a career from business, management, and administration? I think you had us compare our chosen career and a career from this cluster to show us that there are many similarities between jobs no matter how different they may seem. It shows us that some careers are more like others than we think they are.

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! I had Highway Maintenance Worker and Paperhangers. The projected growths for both are low, yet paperhangers' projected growth is -2% to 2%. A highway maintenance worker has a higher annual median pay. They use different tools and technology, but the same work values.
Now that you have completed some research on your chosen career (careercruising.com), 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? I still would prefer the career I chose. A lawyer and A fashion designer are nothing alike. They both have to pay close attention though. It's can be similar in the characteristics, yet it is also completely different in what you do during the job.
