Project for Middle School Students to Research Careers

I want you to make the project as visual as possible. Your next step is to organize your short to midrange planning. Are there any remaining high school courses or activities you need to take or be involved with during your senior year to prepare for your career?

These plans should bear in mind your short and midrange goals through high school graduation. This is a point where students are left with the question; "What am I going to do now? I want you to be very specific about what steps you plan to take upon high school graduation.

This might incorporate a midrange goal. No matter what you intend to do I want detailed, specific plans. I would want to know specifically where you would want to go to college and why. I would want you to list the types of courses that would be required for becoming a teacher.

What is your major and what subjects do you want to teach? How are you going to pay for college? Are you taking out a college loan? Are your parents paying for your college? Maybe you are doing the GI Bill through the Army? You need to think about finances. Are you going to work a job to put yourself through school? If so, how long will it take you to graduate? How are you going to get a job? Are you staying in school to get your Master's Degree?

This may be one area you want to incorporate in a long-range goal. Hypothetically pretend you have followed your plans and you have now achieved your dream job. Describe your job and what you are responsible for doing. Where do you work? This is a minute oral presentation. Be sure to follow directions on time minimums and maximums for your presentation. Each presentation must also include all of the following:.

This Career Project could be one of the most important projects you ever think about or do. I will not accept a professional or amateur athlete as a career occupation. This project is one that students will see has a real-world application. Most will be very excited to be thinking about their future and what they really want to be when they grow up.

Career Inventory Now that students have been in the school system for several years, some may have decided that they really don't want to go to college for more than eight years to be a doctor. Career Research Now that students have three possible careers, they can start researching those jobs.

They need to find out the following for each career: Career Preparation Amount of years of college and or job training needed: Amount of training time on the job before a full salary can be earned.

Job Description Describe the day-to-day duties and tasks that are required of the job. Describe the setting for the career, such as a hospital, ship, office building, outdoors, etc. Explain the parts of the country where a student can find this job.

Pay or Salary Describe a starting salary or rate of pay per hour for this job sometimes students find a top salary that is unrealistic for a beginning worker.
