My Career Cluster Areas

Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources- In the Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources cluster, you could raise plants and animals as sources for food and shelter. On the other hand, you could focus on selling and making products from plants and animals. These products include food, lumber, and fabrics. You might also provide advice and services that farmers and ranchers need to improve products. Another option in this cluster is to work to conserve natural resources and protect the environment.

Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics- You have three avenues. One is to move people and products by road, air, rail, or water. You would drive or pilot different means of transportation. The second is to repair and maintain the vehicles, trains, plains, and ships to keep people and products moving. The third option is to work behind the scenes to make sure the products and people get to the right place on time.

Health Science-You would promote health and wellness or diagnose and treat injuries and disease. You could work directly with people. Or you could work in laboratories to get information used in research or diagnosis. Health service employees go to work at a variety of different sites.

What I Learned About Myself

I learned that if I start to focus on my grades and start taking the classes I need, then my dream of going to a good college and pursuing my dream job will come true. Since I love animals and since they have a special place in my heart, I want to have a job where there are animals or where I am working with them or helping/caring for them. I learned that all of my career clusters involve an animal job.

Since I don't like to do the same thing every single day, I think being a veterinary assistant, zoologist, or an animal caretaker would be a really good fit for me. I learned that my personality traits relate well to the job I want to have in my future and I also learned that my work importance locators match really well with an animal caretaker. Learning these motivates me to be who I want to be in the future and to fulfill my dream job and work hard to get it.
