Find the Occupational Outlook Handbook online from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Pick two different careers you are interested in. Find both in the Occupational Outlook Handbook. If your career choice is not listed, choose the next closest career you can find. Learn about the career (you may also use other sources—cite them!) and answer the following questions for both career choices.
1. What career did you decide to research? Why did you pick this career? What is your opportunity cost of pursuing this career? ( pick something like business/farmer/comedian or anything )
2. What type of personal traits work best for people in this career? Do you have these traits or can you develop them?
3. What type of education, training, and/or experience is needed for this career? What steps have you already taken towards these? What are the next steps you should take? How will you go about taking financing and taking the next steps?
5. What type of working conditions and lifestyle can you expect in this career? Do you think this is a good match for you? If so, why? If not, why not?
